How we are supporting students

We have a range of measures in place to support students who need to self-isolate or study from home due to Covid-19. The numbers of staff and students on our campuses at present is much lower than usual as we are operating a blended model of learning.

We understand that this will be a challenging time for students, and we are committed to keeping them up to date with detailed information and ensuring there is support in place throughout their period of self-isolation. 

This includes:

  • Regular communication from the University, their course team and the Incident Response Team (IRT)
  • Clear and regular guidance on how to self-isolate and stay safe
  • Support for students in accommodation who need help accessing food or other crucial supplies such as medicine and toiletries.
  • Offering support through our Student Support and Wellbeing team, including mental health, faith and disability. 
  • Opportunities to engage in virtual social events and quarantine chats through WLV Welcome and our Students' Union.
  • Providing access to learning from home or their residence with any on-campus sessions replicated online, where possible with our blended learning approach. 
  • Outlining guidance from the government around local restrictions in place across Wolverhampton, Walsall, Telford and Burton. 
  • Ensuring that students know what to do if they have symptoms of Covid-19, providing clear internal reporting procedures and guidance on how to access an NHS test.

What happens when someone tests positive?

At the University of Wolverhampton, we have prepared extensively for positive cases of Covid-19, and are following a detailed case management procedure, led by a dedicated Incident Response Team (IRT).

The IRT act as the first line of our response, coordinating all information relating to suspected and confirmed cases of Covid-19 in staff and students.

Should a case of Covid-19 be identified, the IRT will coordinate a rapid response, ensuring that all actions required by the local Health Protection Team are implemented, including:

  • Assisting with the identification of close contacts to enable effective contact tracing
  • Notifying wider University services so that necessary steps can be taken, such as additional cleaning and student support
  • Liaising with local health protection teams
  • Providing guidance and support to students and staff who are self-isolating
