Frequently asked questions

The University of Manchester recognises that staff, students and visitors may have concerns about the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

There are a number of sources that are informing the University’s approach. Principally the University is reflecting the advice from Universities UK, Public Health England and The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Our latest advice and support is available at:

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.
