Student Update: Road to Reopening FAQs, Welcome and Enrolment
As you will be aware from our recent communications and the Road to Reopening @WLV, the University of Wolverhampton is working hard to prepare for your safe return to our campuses from September.
In a recent feedback survey with the Students Union, you told us that you wanted more face-to-face time with your lecturers, more live sessions online, to return to campus for teaching where it is safe and access to study space in the libraries. We have listened to your feedback and are reflecting it in our planning for the new academic year.
When you return to your studies in September, you will learn through a variety of delivery methods which will include face-to-face teaching on campus and online, pre-recorded videos and lectures, and live online activities. This is what we call blended learning.
We recognise, however, that each student faces different challenges and we know that some of you may not feel ready to return to campus straight away. So we need to ensure, where possible, that these students can access all their learning online. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to have to work differently and your safety is our primary concern.
We understand that in these uncertain times you will have a lot of questions about what life at the University will be like in the new academic year, and in our new Road to Reopening FAQs we have tried to answer these so that you feel prepared and ready to return to your studies from September.
You can find out more about your teaching and learning, as well as what life on-campus will be like from September in the Road to Reopening FAQs.
There will also be a team of experienced Student Ambassadors at City and Walsall Campus, who will be supporting new students joining the University to navigate our campuses.
Timetables, Enrolment and Module Registration
As part of our social distancing measures you will not be learning in large groups (so lectures will be on line). Seminars, workshops and laboratories will have far fewer people in them than previously with and teaching rooms will be marked out to ensure there is sufficient distance between occupants.
Returning students: Once you have obtained enough credits to progress on to your next year of studies you will be notified that enrolment and module registration is open for you in e:Vision. It is important that you complete both of these tasks as soon as possible so that we can prepare your personalised timetable ahead of the new academic year.
We recognise that many of our students will have additional commitments outside their studies, so we are doing all we can to ensure timetables are ready as soon as possible. These are exceptional circumstances and we really appreciate your patience in relation to this in these challenging times.
Where you can find more information
We are committed to keeping students up to date and we do this by email, on our social media channels (Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) and the University Student News webpage.
I want to assure all students that staff across the University are working hard in preparation for the new semester. We strive to provide the best student experience possible and we always welcome your feedback.
The ‘Services for students at the University of Wolverhampton’ survey is now open and you can access the survey here: https://enp.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/services-for-students-at-the-university-of-wolverhampton
