Advice for Applicants Starting Undergraduate Degrees in 2021
Following the government announcement that exams for A-Level students and some BTEC students in England have been cancelled for the 2021 academic year, we would like to provide some reassurance to all of our applicants.
We understand some of you may be concerned about the cancellation of A-levels and other exams this year, while recent lockdowns in the UK may also have had an impact on your learning and preparation for university.
With that in mind, when this year’s results are released, we will take into account the lack of classroom time there has been since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, taking a pragmatic and flexible approach.
We are committed to offering our regular face-to-face campus experience as soon as it is permitted. We know this is a high priority for most of you. Therefore, as soon as restrictions allow, we will resume face-to-face teaching and learning. We expect to do so within 10 working days of this being allowed, though the exact timing will depend on health, legal, regulatory and buildings advice.
In the meantime, we continue to run our successful live online teaching mode for our undergraduate courses. You can see more about our students’ experiences of learning during this academic year below.
We would like to thank our students and staff for their continued support. We want to assure our students (current and future) that your education will be safe with us, whatever the circumstances.
