University Public Statement
The University continues to apply Government guidance in full, and adapt our approach in response to the rapidly changing situation.
We have worked hard to adapt our campus, teaching spaces, and timetabled classes in order to keep our community, students, and staff as safe as possible. We will continue to adjust our response to the pandemic as needed and in line with UK Government requirements, to ensure sure that we support all students to meet their learning outcomes and have an enjoyable and positive student experience in this unusual year.
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. As soon as Government restrictions allow, we will move to increased face-to-face teaching on campus.
We are working very closely with Public Health England and our Gloucestershire Health Protection Team to manage any positive cases of Covid-19 within our University community to reduce the risk of onward transmission, and are ensuring that students who are self-isolating are being supported by the University's accommodation and welfare teams.
We all have a role to play in our University and local community in doing our individual part to stay safe and reduce the risk of transmission of Coronavirus. We are therefore running asymptomatic testing for students and staff, and strongly encourage all students to take part in the programme before they engage with any on campus activities in the New Year. Information on how to book tests has been provided to students via MyGlos.
Our welfare support and counselling services are continuing to operate. Students should go to the Get Support tile on MyGlos, or contact Student Services via the Helpzones Team using (01242) 714444 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
We will continue to provide regular updates to staff and students via email, and the Staffnet and MyGlos portals.
