We believe we have a duty to our students, staff and wider community to provide the best possible teaching and research, despite the challenges that we face locally, nationally and globally. We are committed to ensuring that we provide the teaching and learning experience this generation of students deserves. Throughout this, the health safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and community is paramount.

Government guidance

The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced on 10 May that England will proceed to step 3 of the Government’s 4-step roadmap on the 17 May. The Government continues to closely monitor the Covid-19 situation and is taking action, in the UK and overseas. From the 17 May higher education teaching will be eligible to safely phase a return to campus whilst continuing to adhere to social distancing measures and following Covid-19 safety procedures.

England’s roadmap to cautiously ease the lockdown restrictions to safely transition to the new normal way of life and studying will have no immediate effect on your learning with all core teaching continuing to be delivered online. However, from 17 May you will have the opportunity to book a study space or appointment with out support services on-campus. Please check coming into campus page for more information.

All information is accurate at the time of sharing. Courses starting in 2021 are offered as a mix of face to face and online learning. We continue to monitor government and local authority guidance in relation to Covid-19 and we are ready and able to flex accordingly to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. Contact time is subject to increase or decrease in line with additional restrictions imposed by the government or the University in the interest of maintaining the health and safety and wellbeing of students, staff, and visitors, potentially to a full online offer, should further restrictions be deemed necessary in future. Our online activity will be delivered through Blackboard Ultra, enabling collaboration, connection and engagement with materials and people.

Updated opening hours

The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority, so we’re working hard to make sure that people can make the most of our London Campus when possible and feel safe and supported, ready to make the most of life at University.

For current students who are currently in London: Our Social Learning facilities on campus are open, you should only travel from home to campus if it is absolutely necessary for your learning. If you have urgent need to access our learning spaces, you must continue to follow the Coronavirus safer travel guidance for passengers. You must also book a place in advance before arriving on campus via our booking system.
