Committed to exceptional teaching and learning

Committed to exceptional teaching and learning - postgraduate students

Covid-19 has changed the world dramatically, and we do not yet fully know how the pandemic will continue to affect our lives in the next academic year. What we do know is that we are absolutely committed to providing an outstanding education no matter what the year brings. We won’t let Covid-19 get in the way of you learning and obtaining a world class degree.

Your health and wellbeing is our top priority and we are planning our degree programmes so that you can stay safe and keep studying, learning and progressing throughout the year.

If the roadmap set out by the UK Government successfully continues as planned, we expect to deliver the majority of your teaching face-to-face on our campuses, with personal academic support. Building on our experience of adapting our teaching over the last year and through listening to our students’ feedback, we have developed an enhanced, blended approach to teaching and learning. This takes some of the best aspects of teaching that students really enjoyed last year to provide more flexible learning activities, such as lecture material that is available online to watch at your own pace to complement on campus sessions.

Some individual modules may have changed as a result to provide more flexibility, but we’ve worked hard to minimise any impact on you and ensure that your learning experience is of excellent quality, rich and varied. Our Postgraduate Study pages now include the most up to date information about your modules. We’re confident that our teaching in the autumn and throughout the year will be fulfilling and safe for you, whatever the situation in the UK or indeed around the world.

Our campuses have been reopened safely and, in accordance with government regulations, we will continue to enable social interaction and access to facilities such as libraries and face-to-face teaching. The on campus experience is vital for you to engage with your peers, as well as academic staff, and to be part of the student learning community.

We’re making a commitment that you’ll be taught by excellent lecturers, professors and researchers. Your university experience with us will be thought-provoking, stimulating and exciting and you’ll be inspired by your peers and academics as they challenge theories, engage in pioneering research and seek to innovate and drive change for the future.

In 2021/22, we plan to deliver a mix of on campus and online teaching, with personal academic support. We’re expecting the majority of academic colleagues to be on campus to deliver in-person teaching, whilst recognising this may have to be adjusted in line with the Government regulations in place at the time.

Building on our experience of adapting our teaching over the last year and through listening to our students’ feedback, we have developed an enhanced, blended approach to teaching and learning. This takes some of the best aspects of teaching that students really enjoyed last year to provide more flexible learning activities, such as lecture material that is available online to watch at your own pace to complement on campus sessions.

We will provide laboratory work and practical sessions on campus in a safe environment, as required by Government regulations. These sessions will be prioritised in the timetable and we will ensure you obtain the skills to meet professional and clinical standards.

We expect most field work and field courses to go ahead, but where this is not possible alternative locations may be offered, potentially more regional or local options or smaller groups or individual work. In some cases we may be required to offer a virtual field trip, using the very latest technology. We have been developing these virtual options since long before COVID-19 for environmental reasons and because of the educational potential such technologies offer.

We expect placements in industry as part of your course to go ahead, and we are working closely with partner organisations to try to make this happen. If it isn’t possible, you may be able to undertake your work placement remotely.

Dissertations, projects and written work are often submitted online and this will continue. Presentations, where required, will be a blend of in person and in class or online using technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Many assessments or examinations are likely to be online and this is something we had been developing as part of our commitment to accessible learning and to meet student and academic needs. Your tutors will explain the options and requirements for each module.

Your education induction and welcome will mostly be on campus and face-to-face as long as safe to do so and in line with government guidance at the time. This will be supported by digital resources and using technology such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom to interact with larger groups. It will be possible to access induction materials and activities online if you cannot come onto campus at the start of term in September.

The UK has one of the most advanced vaccination programmes in the world, and we are planning a high-quality campus-based experience for the academic year 2021/22, supplemented by excellent digital resources to enhance your educational experience. The majority of our degree programmes are designed on the basis of in-person attendance on our campuses, so if you are able to travel we would love to welcome you in September, to get the best university experience possible for you.

If you are not able to travel to the UK to take up your place in person due to national or government travel restrictions, either in your own country or in the UK, please be assured that we will provide you with an appropriate form of remote study during Term 1 (Monday 20 September - Friday 10 December 2021).

However, this will not be possible for some programmes which have in-person only teaching requirements, such as some lab-based/practical programmes.

For further information please visit our remote study pages.

For the majority of postgraduate taught courses your teaching will start on 20 September 2021, however, some programmes do have an earlier start date in September. You should have received an email confirming the start date for your programme, please check for the exact date. This year, some courses are also offering the option of a January 2022 start date. Please note, some of the information provided on these pages may not be applicable if you are a student starting in January 2022.

Department and programme commitments to quality teaching and learning for postgraduates

Each department or programme has summarised their expectations for high quality teaching and learning for 2021/22. Please see below an A-Z list of departmental and programme teaching and learning descriptions and a link to module pages for more information.

A-Z of subject disciplines and programmes

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver the majority of teaching and learning face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching in small groups. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this new engaging way of learning and are excited about enabling you to succeed. 

Building on our experience this year, all classes will be supported by extensive online resources – a mixture of video, quizzes, exercises, explanations and guided reading – enabling you to study independently and thrive. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

In addition to the core teaching on programmes, we will offer: 

  • a comprehensive induction to prepare you for all eventualities and to get the most from our new way of learning
  • a wide range of academic development workshops to support your learning  
  • events with fellow students on your chosen programme 
  • continued provision of our industrial placements and study abroad options (again re-designed to provide flexibility in terms of study duration and location)

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group.

Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/courses/accounting/

Our modules will comprise of live teaching each week, through lectures, skills workshops, seminars, in-conversation events or a Q&A session. 

Whenever possible, all our seminars and smaller lectures will take place on campus. We’ll make use of our extensive facilities including teaching rooms, laboratory spaces (for languages, archaeology and digital humanities), performance areas, our Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, and other teaching spaces.  

Larger lectures may need to be pre-recorded, depending on guidance set out by the Government.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study both as a group and an individual. These will include video lectures, narrated PowerPoints, podcasts, film clips, discussion boards, 3D imaging of artefacts, mapping visualisations and virtual reconstructions. You’ll be given direction in how to make the most of the resources provided, as well as how to structure your own independent study time. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning. 

As always, we’ll encourage peer-to-peer learning, both online and in-person.

Although many assessments will remain the same, some assessments may be restructured to fit with the strengths of blended learning. For example, some closed book exams may be replaced by open book exams or coursework. Some modules may include the creation of a portfolio of learning tasks. There may be a 10% participation mark for some of your modules to help with engagement and to allow tutors to provide feedback and support with your learning. 

Off-campus teaching activities such as field schools and field trips will be run wherever possible, in line with Government regulations.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver as much of our teaching and learning as possible face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

Your year will begin with a welcome conference, at which you’ll hear from some of our recent postgraduate students about their final project findings. This will help you settle in, get to know the academic staff and fellow students.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching where it is safe to do so. This will include a combination of lectures, tutor meetings and meetings with your project supervisor. Depending on your course, this may also include practical field or lab work both on campus and at other locations in the region.  

Some lecture-based teaching sessions may move online.  Our students found that this was more inclusive than traditional lectures as it gives you the flexibility to access them at any time in any place. It also means that you’re able to pause and rewind your lectures, meaning you can learn at your own pace.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study independently and thrive, including an online space, ‘The Pangol Inn’, offering a virtual space for you to study and socialise together. 

Fieldwork is at the centre of our academic practice and we want to ensure it remains within our programmes.  This is being regularly reviewed. If any of the planned fieldwork is not possible due to Covid restrictions (including overseas field-courses), we will consider alternative locations and durations or, if necessary, provide online options that allow you to experience the necessary field skills. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience.

If we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources. 

Our modules will comprise of live teaching each week, through lectures, skills workshops, seminars, in-conversation events or a Q&A session. 

Whenever possible, all our seminars and smaller lectures will take place on campus. We’ll make use of our extensive facilities including teaching rooms, laboratory spaces (for languages, archaeology and digital humanities), performance areas, our Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, and other teaching spaces.  

Larger lectures may need to be pre-recorded, depending on guidance set out by the Government.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study both as a group and an individual. These will include video lectures, narrated PowerPoints, podcasts, film clips, discussion boards, 3D imaging of artefacts, mapping visualisations and virtual reconstructions. You’ll be given direction in how to make the most of the resources provided, as well as how to structure your own independent study time. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning. 

As always, we’ll encourage peer-to-peer learning, both online and in-person. We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group. 

Although many assessments will remain the same, some assessments may be restructured to fit with the strengths of blended learning. For example, some closed book exams may be replaced by open book exams or coursework. Some modules may include the creation of a portfolio of learning tasks. There may be a 10% participation mark for some of your modules to help with engagement and to allow tutors to provide feedback and support with your learning.

Off-campus teaching activities such as field schools and field trips will be run wherever possible, in line with Government regulations.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver the majority of teaching and learning face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching in small groups. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this new engaging way of learning and are excited about enabling you to succeed. 

Building on our experience this year, all classes will be supported by extensive online resources – a mixture of video, quizzes, exercises, explanations and guided reading – enabling you to study independently and thrive. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

In addition to the core teaching on programmes, we will offer: 

  • a comprehensive induction to prepare you for all eventualities and to get the most from our new way of learning
  • a wide range of academic development workshops to support your learning  
  • events with fellow students on your chosen programme 
  • continued provision of our industrial placements and study abroad options (again re-designed to provide flexibility in terms of study duration and location)

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group.

Geography on the Penryn Campus

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver as much of our teaching and learning as possible face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

As part of Welcome Week, you will be able to take part in a range of activities that will help you settle into university life and your studies.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching in small groups. This will include a combination of live face-to-face seminars and workshops sessions which will be delivered either on campus or online.

Some lecture-based teaching sessions may move online.  Our students found that this was more inclusive than traditional lectures as it gives you the flexibility to access them at any time in any place. It also means that you’re able to pause and rewind your lectures, meaning you can learn at your own pace.

Field work is at the centre of our academic practice and we want to ensure it remains within our programmes.  This is being regularly reviewed. If this is not possible, we will consider alternative locations and durations for our field trips or, if necessary, provide online options that allow you to experience the necessary field skills, such as data handling. 

You’ll have academic support from your Project Supervisor, and our teaching staff will offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group. 

We’ll host Town Hall meetings for all students throughout the year so we can keep you updated with what’s happening in the department and so we can listen to your feedback about the course. This helps ensure you are part of an active learning community, with plenty of opportunities to engage with staff and your peers throughout the year.

The last 18 months we’ve have enjoyed creating a vibrant online postgraduate education community.

We’re largely keeping our contact days the same but if we are unable to deliver these on campus, we will be undertaking live online teaching and learning activities with individual tasks and small group activities.

Lectures will typically be broken down into bite-sized chunks online which gives you the flexibility to access them at any time in any place. This will be supported by small group sessions and extensive online resources to enable you to study independently and thrive, including video and discussion boards created by our experts.

Any practical skills demonstrations that cannot be delivered face-to-face will take place virtually with videos and workshops. Some laboratory and data projects may have to be replaced by literature or data projects, depending on the latest Government regulations.

You’ll have regular 1:1 support from your dissertation supervisors which may be via email/phone/Teams/Zoom. Our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

We will offer you a dynamic and exciting ‘blended’ programme of smaller group teaching and online videos, resources, and discussion boards. There will be timetabled problem based learning and interactive group teaching sessions delivered using Microsoft Teams and supported with a University of Exeter Medical School issued individual student iPad.

Clinical skills training will still take place on campus with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) measures in place. Depending on current government and NHS advice, you will undertake clinical placements where you will follow the relevant health and safety guidance for that specific environment.

Assessments for clinical practice and medical knowledge will still be undertaken in person with appropriate PPE/social distancing measures. Special study unit assessments will be submitted online. Professionalism and Fitness to Practise will be monitored in the normal way.

In Natural Sciences, we have re-designed our modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied remotely and online, but with the option to enjoy substantial amounts of face-to-face teaching on campus. We are planning that you will have a minimum of 10 hours live contact time with your teacher each week, split across four compulsory first year modules. As well as this, all staff will be accessible through weekly ‘open offices’ when they will be able to answer questions and talk about your progress on the course.

Lectures will continue to be a regular part of university life. To create the flexibility needed we are replacing the traditional face-to-face lecture with online learning curated by the module lead. This will usually be a mixture of videos, quizzes, exercises and guided reading. This content is not live and can be studied at a time that works best for you.

Small group work, such as practicals, tutorials and problem-solving classes will be on campus when conditions allow. Some classes may be run online, using, for example, Microsoft Teams or Zoom. We’ve worked with many of our current students to build this new, exciting, flexible provision for you. We’ll also be making use of discussion forums and chats to create more opportunities for you to meet and come together with other students online.

Laboratory work is an important part of your course we are prioritising this for face-to-face teaching. This teaching will be in small, designated groups with different staff members assigned to supervise each group.  Lab-based demonstrations and experiments will take place face-to-face provided it is safe to do so.  In the event of this not being possible, virtual labs will take place with step-by-step recorded experiments supplemented with online support sessions to assist with understanding results, data handling and conclusions. These will also be available to students unable to participate in person.

We have re-designed and digitally enhanced our modules for maximum flexibility so they can be studied online, alongside face to face teaching on campus. Your time will be split between live teaching with rich digital content made available at all times to ensure fair, equitable and convenient access. You will be joining and co-creating a vibrant learning community so that you are well-connected both on campus and online.

Overall, our students will spend more time interacting live with staff than ever before. Small group learning is a key feature of what we do - something which is almost unique amongst science degrees. This year these groups will be smaller than ever to optimise their live online delivery, whilst also linking them to group-specific discussion boards. Laboratory sessions will use a range of recorded demonstrations and specialist software. We plan to supplement these with a week-long summer school in term 3. Some modules will continue to include face-to-face teaching, where it is safe to do so.

Lectures will be re-imagined and provided online, split into bite-size sections to support flexible learning. These will be supplemented with a series of live-stream events, introducing students to key figures in Neuroscience based in Exeter and around the world. Tutor groups will be designed to increase interaction and support and there will be regular one-to-one in-person meetings, provided it is safe to do so. Attendance at in-person sessions will be optional. Written and multiple-choice assessments will be timed, open-book, and online.

Written coursework will continue unchanged, whilst assessed presentations will take place online. Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information.

We will offer you a dynamic and exciting ‘blended’ programme of campus-based face-to-face teaching and online videos, discussion boards, quizzes, problem based learning sessions and seminars, using Microsoft Teams or Zoom. You will learn practical skills side by side with lecturers, in our purpose built simulated ward and in the clinical skills resource centre. We will deliver this safely in small groups with everyone wearing appropriate personal protective equipment and adopting strict hand washing and hygiene procedures.

Depending on current government and NHS advice, you will undertake clinical placements in hospital, community and primary care settings, where you will follow the relevant placement and health and safety guidance in place for that specific environment.

We will assess your progress using a mix of face-to-face, timed, and invigilated practical examinations in the teaching ward, clinical skills resource centre or virtually to simulate new ways of working in the NHS. Where possible some assessments may take place online such as the Drug Calculation Test and your assessed presentations may be online via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Written coursework will be submitted in the normal way.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver teaching and learning mainly face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

As part of Welcome Week, you will be able to take part in a range of activities that will help you settle into university life and your studies.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching. This will include live face-to-face lectures, seminars and discussions which will be delivered on campus with the option of taking those classes online where possible. Lectures may be live and/or recorded allowing you to watch online if you prefer Practical statistics sessions will be delivered face-to-face wherever possible.

You’ll have regular academic support from your Project Supervisor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

We’ll host consultation meetings for students throughout the year so we can keep you updated with what’s happening in the department and so we can listen to your feedback about the course. This helps ensure you are part of an active learning community, with plenty of opportunities to engage with staff and your peers throughout the year. 

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses in interactive learning sessions but there will also be discussions board, and quizzes to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver the majority of teaching and learning face-to-face on our campuses, but if we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

In all scenarios, our focus will be to maintain on-campus teaching in small groups. This will include practicals, tutorials and problem-solving classes. Laboratory and practical work are an important part of your course and we are prioritising this for face-to-face teaching.

Some lecture-based teaching sessions may move online but our students found that this was more inclusive than traditional lectures as it gives you the flexibility to access them at any time in any place. It also means that you’re able to pause and rewind your lectures, meaning you can learn at your own pace.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study independently and thrive, including videos, quizzes, exercises and guided reading. Virtual labs will take place with step-by-step recorded experiments supplemented with online support sessions to assist with understanding results, data handling and conclusions.

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

Field work and practical work are an important part of some modules. The University has worked hard to develop safe practices to allow these activities to take place, so we aim to deliver off-campus field trips, placements and visits whenever Government regulations allow.  

Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information: https://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/courses/engineering/

We have re-designed our modules for maximum flexibility with the ability to enjoy face to face teaching on campus and online where necessary, enhanced by digital technology. Your time will be split between live teaching and learning with rich digital content made available at all times to ensure fair, equitable and convenient access. You will be joining and co-creating a vibrant learning community so that you are well-connected both on campus and online.  

You will experience lectures, seminars and discussions in small groups with as much scheduled activity taking place on campus as restrictions allow. In addition, podcasts, video masterclasses, activity packs, narrated PowerPoints, discussion forums, individual and group work will enable you to complete tasks in your own time or with fellow students. Staff will be available each week for one-to-one support during term-time office hours. 

In addition to the core teaching on programmes, we will offer: 

  • a comprehensive induction to prepare you for all eventualities studying across this range of formats 
  • ongoing access to an Academic Personal Tutor 
  • events with fellow students on your programme 

Some assessments may be revised to support blended learning e.g. presentations may be online, group projects or podcasts.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible blended learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Our intention is to deliver a predominance of face-to face on-campus teaching, supported with online materials and some online seminar sessions (where this is deemed better for the student experience). If we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources.

As part of Welcome Week, you will be able to take part in a range of activities that will help you settle into university life and your studies. You will spend time with the post-graduate programme director and your personal tutor, both of whom will be a point of contact for the duration of your time with us.

During the term, some large group lectures will be held on campus, but most of your traditional lecture content will be in the form of recordings that you will be able to access at times that suit you. These recordings are produced by the staff leading you in the corresponding follow up on-campus sessions, which will be conducted in small groups. These small group sessions will either be an opportunity to discuss the lecture content and/or you will perform practical experiments in our laboratories which are related to the topics covered in the lecture recordings. Our students found the lecture recordings to be more accessible than traditional large group lectures as it affords the flexibility to access them at any time in any place. It also means that you’re able to pause and rewind your lectures, meaning you can learn at your own pace. Where lecture recordings are used, these will be a series of short bespoke videos, where each focuses on one particular topic and they are designed to hold your interest and attention.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study independently and thrive, including preparatory online bespoke videos in advance of practical lab sessions to help you get the most out of your on-campus sessions.

As part of your studies, you will be completing a project/dissertation. You will be assigned a project supervisor who is an expert in the area of study you wish to pursue, and you will have regular contact with them. All of our staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning.

We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be online discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group.

We’ve designed a dynamic and flexible learning approach which can quickly adapt to changing circumstances and Government regulations. Teaching will be made up of a combination of live teaching (on campus wherever possible), flexible online learning activity, and independent study. If we need to adapt as a result of the pandemic, we’ll still aim to deliver live on-campus teaching wherever possible, enhanced with the best of our online learning and excellent digital resources. 

Our modules will comprise of live teaching each week, through lectures, skills workshops, seminars, in-conversation events or a Q&A session. 

Whenever possible, all our seminars and smaller lectures will take place on campus. We’ll make use of our extensive facilities including teaching rooms, laboratory spaces (for languages, archaeology and digital humanities), performance areas, our Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, and other teaching spaces.  

Larger lectures may need to be pre-recorded, depending on guidance set out by the Government.

In all scenarios, you’ll have access to extensive online resources to enable you to study both as a group and an individual. These will include video lectures, narrated PowerPoints, podcasts, film clips, discussion boards, 3D imaging of artefacts, mapping visualisations and virtual reconstructions. You’ll be given direction in how to make the most of the resources provided, as well as how to structure your own independent study time. 

You’ll have regular 1:1 academic support from your Academic Personal Tutor, and our teaching staff will continue to offer office open hours so that you always have someone to assist you with your learning. 

As always, we’ll encourage peer-to-peer learning, both online and in-person. We know that working collaboratively and socialising with your peers is a key part of learning and the whole university experience. We hope that most of this can be done in-person on our campuses but there will also be discussions boards and live chats and to ensure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with friends outside of your group. 

Although many assessments will remain the same, some assessments may be restructured to fit with the strengths of blended learning. For example, some closed book exams may be replaced by open book exams or coursework. Some modules may include the creation of a portfolio of learning tasks. There may be a 10% participation mark for some of your modules to help with engagement and to allow tutors to provide feedback and support with your learning. 

Off-campus teaching activities such as field schools and field trips will be run wherever possible, in line with Government regulations.
