We are closely following the latest advice and guidance issued by the UK Government and Public Health England. We will continue to take all appropriate and necessary steps, as required by the official advice, to keep our community safe.
As a University community, nation and world, we are facing a changing and unpredictable situation which is challenging for us all. Your health and wellbeing are our top priority, and we are doing all we can to plan for all possible circumstances.
Access to buildings
Our campus is currently closed.
Students can check a dedicated online guide to using library services off-campus for more information.
Our intention is that no student will be disadvantaged academically as a result of these closures. If learning resources required to complete assessments or prepare for examinations cannot be accessed, students should contact Hallam Help for advice.
Assessment and exams
We know many students are concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their studies.
Our priority is to ensure that learning, assessments, and results are not adversely affected as a result of COVID-19. Read the new measures on assessments and exams that we have put in place to support students.
If you are concerned about paying fees, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University is committed to delivering all teaching activities online and/or through remote access to materials, including lecture materials on Blackboard, delivery of lectures and tutorials online, either in real time or recorded, and one-to-one support and supervision delivered by phone, email or videoconferencing. Your student fee covers a wide range of activities and services, including scheduled teaching sessions. We are committed to ensuring alternative online arrangements are in place for teaching, learning and assessments. We will continue to keep this under review and follow Higher Education sector advice from the Office for Students.
Departments will be providing final-year students with guidance. Any student with concerns should contact their Student Support Adviser.
