Change the world


  • The University has taken a principled decision to suspend all academic activities until further notice.
  • In operational terms, this means that all engagement with students – lectures and assessments – be postponed until further notice, except for limited essential experiential learning, especially where human life is at risk.
  • The University encourages all students to continue learning independently – as far as possible in the circumstances.
  • Staff who wish to access campus to retrieve books, other materials or to attend to urgent matters should liaise with their line managers, right up to the Dean, who will contact head of Protection Services to make arrangements to escort you to your office at a convenient time to all involved. 

Faculties have undertaken to ensure that once operations resume, students will be given a reasonable opportunity to prepare for the assessments to be rescheduled.

This depends on the committee and the urgency of the matters under consideration. Urgent meetings are conducted electronically. If there is a specific need for a face-to-face meeting the relevant MANCO or EMANCO member can bring such a request to a special EMANCO meeting.

As at 10:00 on Friday, 7 October - you are able to access campuses.
