As a College, we hope you enjoyed the winter break and are pleased to be welcoming you back to campus for term two. Please note, to keep yourself, and our campus community safe, we expect all students to take a lateral flow test before travelling back to campus, and to continue to take tests at least twice a week. You can order lateral flow testing kits from the government website, or if you’re living in Halls, you can collect testing kits from your Hall block.
Term two in-person teaching
Our aim is to continue to provide safe in-person, on campus teaching as timetabled. The measures we have put in place to minimise the transmission of Covid-19 on campus means that, as planned, and in line with instruction from the Department of Education, we will continue to deliver on campus all modules that are timetable as in person during term two, and we look forward to welcoming you back to campus for the start of term on Monday 10 January 2022.
Can I stay home and study online?
As explained at the end of term one, we ask that all students continue to make arrangements to return to study in-person for the start of term two on Monday 10 January 2022.
We recognise there are still some challenges around international travel and if you are unable to travel as planned, please see the information here. We will seek to provide you with online access until you are able to join on campus.
If you are required to self-isolate due to Covid-19, please report this via the Covid Absence Form. You should also contact your School Office as soon as possible. We will seek to provide you with online access until you are able to re-join on campus.
Wearing a face covering
Unless you are exempt, as per government guidance, students are currently required to wear face-coverings when inside buildings, including during in-person teaching, when studying in the Library, and when moving around inside buildings. If you are exempt, you are asked to wear a sunflower lanyard which can be obtained from the Student Services Centre in the Davison Building or School Offices. If you do not have a face-covering, these are also available at the Student Services Centre, School Offices or Café on the Square.
Take regular lateral flow tests
When you return to campus, you should ensure that you have registered a negative lateral flow test within 24 hours of arriving on campus. All students are then expected to continue to take lateral flow tests at least twice a week. You can order lateral flow testing kits from the government website, however, if you're struggling to get hold of kits, students living in Halls can collect one from your Hall block or a small supply will be available at your School Office.
