Staying safe on campus

We’ll have all appropriate safety measures and a few restrictions in place. And every building will be open in line with Government guidance – including teaching spaces, communal spaces, toilets, cafes and the library. For more information about how we're ensuring your safety on campus, head to the 'Campus and city life 2020/21' page.

Due to coronavirus, we've made some changes to teaching to keep you safe. You'll take part in most large teaching sessions online. And any face-to-face teaching will be in small groups with social distancing measures in place. We've set up sanitisation stations across campus, one-way systems in busy areas and protective screens at certain locations.

Due to changing circumstances as a result of the pandemic, we may need to make further changes to courses to ensure your safety and to ensure compliance with Government guidelines. We'll provide you with as much notice as possible of any such changes. Your course leader will inform you of these changes.

International and EU students 

If you're joining us from overseas, find out about our International Orientation events and what you need to do during your first week.

If you can't travel to the UK, or you don't feel safe to travel, your course's first teaching block will be delivered completely online. The majority of Orientation events will also be online, so you'll still be able to get involved in welcome talks and social activities, as well as meet other new students.

Meet your lecturers

We're looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to your first lecture. Below you'll find information of key lecturers who'll teach you during your first teaching block.

Welcome from Carmen Pasamar, interim Head of School

Welcome back to the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics. As you know, the reception is based on the first floor of Park Building, where one of the team will always be able to help you.

Your Personal Tutor will welcome you in Induction Week, and you'll see your Course Leader as well. They'll explain our blended learning approach for Teaching Block 1, and will tell you about all the measures we have put in place to ensure your safety. Your lecturers will also welcome you to your new modules on Moodle, where you will see some exciting updates to make your learning more interactive. Finally, you will have opportunities to learn more about other extra-curricular activities that will take place throughout the year such as the Language Corner or Global Cafe, and our new Academic Enhancement Programme.

Remember that your Personal Tutor will be supporting you throughout your studies, so don't hesitate to ask as many questions as you may have!
