University Public Statement
Updated 15 March 2021
The University continues to apply Government guidance in full, and adapt our approach in response to the rapidly changing situation. It remains our top priority to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff during this pandemic, and to ensure our community is kept aware of the developing situation. We are providing regular email updates to staff and students which are also available to them via the Staffnet and MyGlos portals.
We are now providing face-to-face teaching for students on courses that require practical teaching, specialist facilities, or on-site assessments as part of a blended approach. Students on other programmes will continue learning online for the time being, but we look forward to inviting all students on campus as soon as we are allowed to do so. The Government is expected to review options for when students on those courses can return by the end of the Easter vacation period.
If the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve in line with the Government’s Strategy for recovery and lifting the lockdown, the University intends to start the next academic year in September as planned. As it is expected that social distancing requirements will continue to apply for the foreseeable future, we expect that some of the first semester will require a combination of online teaching and on campus activity, although we are optimistic that students will have most of their learning activities in person and on campus.
