The latest Covid-19 guidance including what it means for teaching, learning and life on campus.

Staff across the University have worked hard in preparation to support students during the pandemic. Ahead of the start of the academic year, there was a focus on making sure all of our campuses are Covid-secure and prepared to respond quickly and effectively to any local or national public health issues that may occur.

The Government announced that those courses that have not yet been permitted to return to campus for teaching will now be able to do so from Monday, 17 May. Michelle Donelan MP, Minister of State for Universities, has also shared an open letter to students.
By this time, semester two teaching and assessment for undergraduate courses will have completed. This means undergraduate students on non-practical courses will complete the remainder of their studies for this academic year online. Postgraduate courses will have two weeks of semester two teaching remaining. We will contact students on postgraduate programmes soon about what the Government announcement means for your programme from 17 May.   
Students are advised to check their timetable in the MyWLV app for the most up to date arrangements for teaching on their course. 

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is our key priority, and we will continue to monitor how our approach is working and make any adjustments that are needed to maintain safety.
