  • As the University remains open, students and staff are expected to be here and attend scheduled lectures and tutorials, unless they are covered by Public Health England guidance which advises them to act differently or self-isolate. 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.
