We have made specific arrangements that will allow our students to receive a world-class education in a safe environment, even under the exceptional circumstances that Covid-19 has imposed on all. We are committed to doing everything we can to support our students and staff, and at the same time continue to provide education in full.

The following actions have been introduced for academic year 2021-22 to support personal and community safety within our learning environment:

LEARNING AND TEACHING ARRANGEMENTS

Face-to-face teaching in class: In the new academic year 2021-2022 we will be able to migrate to face-to-face lectures with strict protective measures in place to ensure the health and safety of all. Classes and services will return to face-to-face delivery and courses will therefore be delivered in person, in-class.

Classes schedule: Class schedules have been arranged so that all classes do not start at the same time to avoid crowding at the time of arrival or during intervals.

Library/Labs: Library and labs are already open and accessible to students. Library space has been properly prepared to accommodate students for the new academic year. Social distancing in reading spaces and antiseptic stations have been installed to allow the safe use of the library space and PCs. Antiseptic stations have been installed in all labs.
