Changes to teaching in 2020/21 due to Covid-19

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, we have had to make some changes to our programmes in order to mitigate the risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation.

Lectures for some modules – those shared with other courses and with large audiences – will be delivered online. The exact proportion of modules to be delivered online will depend on the programme in question, on your elective choices, and on social distancing guidelines prevailing at the time.

It is our hope that some or all of the core modules will be taught in-person as normal, but this may be limited by social distancing requirements and space within the Department. We hope to provide you with more information about this in the near future.

Where teaching is taking place in person, contingencies will be in place for those who need to shield, or in case some form of lockdown is imposed by the government.

More detailed information about our taught courses (MPhil and MRes programmes) can be found on the Graduate Admissions website.
