On 4th January 2021 the Government announced a new national lockdown.

Read our guidance on this national lockdown >

Following the government announcement of a new national lockdown we have developed guidance and FAQs to support our students over the coming weeks.

This means that unless you are studying one of the subjects listed below you should remain at your current accommodation wherever possible and not return to campus.

Teaching and assessments will take place online until at least mid-February.

The only exception to this is for students in the following subjects who should return and get tested before taking part in any face-to-face sessions:

  • Medicine
  • Nursing (all branches)
  • Midwifery
  • Physiotherapy
  • Radiography
  • Physician Associate
  • Pharmacy
  • Social Work
  • Veterinary Science
  • Initial Teacher Training

Students who have recently started a clinical placement or who are due to do so soon should speak with their school with any queries.
