We are putting in place some temporary measures to move some of our teaching online and make additional provision to support our current students in their studies. While students can submit mitigating circumstances at any time, we would not expect forms to be submitted unless there were specific reasons for not following the guidelines.
In addition, we are reviewing all our on-campus visits from prospective students and applicants and we will provide further updates on this page.
We also advise all staff and students to familiarise themselves with the University's Travel Policy.
