Important - Spring Term update for taught students

Dear colleagues

As you may be aware, the Department for Education published its latest guidance last night setting out arrangements for the start of the Spring Term.

It covers how we manage student arrivals back to campus, how the Government will support testing next term, and arrangements for the resumption of in-person teaching for university courses. You can read the Government guidance in full.

We have shared this email to taught students to announce the guidance and to let them know further information will follow. The Government guidance is focused on taught provision and we will clarify if there are any further implications for postgraduate researchers.

The Academic and Student Life Contingency Groups are currently working through all the implications with Deans, Associate Deans and Faculty groups. We will provide further detailed updates as soon as we can.

Best wishes

Charlie
