Your placements are being considered by the placement provider and professional body in negotiation with us. We will communicate the exact details on a course by course basis as soon as we have these. Please bear with us as there are many providers and we are speaking to all of them.


Students looking for future placements will need to discuss the option with placement module tutor.  


Exams and assessments

We understand you may be worried in particular about assessments that normally involve physical presence on campus.   However, please rest assured we are working on ways to approach these issues.  You will be able to seek SAMS-style assistance for support from your tutors in assessments through virtual meetings or by telephone. Contact you tutors to make arrangements for appointments.  For every module, students can post queries on the Canvas forum for the module leader to respond to. 



Postgraduate research students will receive a communication from the Doctoral College outlining how the University will be supporting them during this time.   



If your current modules include practical elements then your module leaders and course teams will be working towards developing alternative modes of delivery, which will be communicated to you on a module by module basis through Canvas. Where module assessments currently include practical aspects these too are being reconsidered and alternatives which will include using Simulators.  If you face difficulties installing some virtual machines on your hardware please make contact with your module leader for alternative solutions.


Students with additional learning needs

Please contact your personal tutor or module leader as necessary.
