Committed to exceptional teaching and learning

Committed to exceptional teaching and learning - new students

 

We are 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. Each course will offer a mix of live teaching both on campus and online, digital resources such as videos, podcasts and interactive content, personal teaching support, plus engagement with fellow students from around the world. We call this a blended learning approach which will enhance and complement our education.   

We promise you an excellent quality of teaching, even if we adjust the way we teach some modules. Now, we want to provide you with information to enable you to get a feel for what your experience will be and on this page you can find details about the expected teaching and learning approach on your course.

Our commitments on the teaching and learning experience

Our campuses will open safely, and in line with government guidance we will enable social interaction, access to facilities such as libraries and face to face teaching. The on campus experience is important for you to engage with peers as well as teachers and to be part of the student learning community.

We’re making a commitment that you’ll be taught by the same excellent lecturers, professors and researchers, that your university experience with us will be thought-provoking, stimulating and exciting, and that 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 2020/21, you will receive a blend of live, face to face teaching both on campus and on line. This will be supported by digital content that you can access in your own time or with fellow students. We are focussing on creating and preparing accessible, interactive and flexible learning. Our focus will be on the quality of teaching and providing a great experience.   

We plan to provide core laboratory work and practical sessions on campus in a safe environment. These will be prioritised in the timetable and we will ensure you obtain the skills to meet professional and clinical standards.

We also plan for most field trips to go ahead, but where this is not possible alternative locations will be offered, potentially local options or smaller groups or individual work. In some cases we may offer virtual field trips, using the very latest technology, which we have been developing since long before Covid-19 for environmental reasons and because of the educational potential.

We are working with partner organisations and institutions to make sure placements in industry and opportunities to study abroad as part of your course go ahead as planned wherever possible. If this is not possible we will contact you directly and discuss alternative or equivalent options.

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 from September 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 the full induction experience online if you cannot come onto campus at the start of term.  

We know that some students may not be able to attend campus for health, personal or logistical reasons related to COVID-19.  In some circumstances you may need to study remotely and we can offer flexibility to assist with your personal requirements. We are an inclusive university and will seek to meet your individual needs.

If you are unable to be on campus by the start of your programme, please email remotestudy@exeter.ac.uk with your Exeter Student Number, Programme, intended enrolment date if post start date and intended on-campus date. This information will be shared with your personal tutor and relevant departments to ensure you are supported in this transition. Remote learning may not be possible in all cases, for example because of professional, statutory or regulatory requirements on certain programmes, but we will be happy to talk to you about your options.

For those who require a visa, you will need to include the date that you intend to travel to the UK in your visa application. The validity of Tier 4 entry visas has been extended from 30 to 90 days, so if you do have to delay your intended travel date you will not have to apply for a new entry visa if you are able to arrive within 90 days of this date.

Department and programme commitments to quality teaching and learning for undergraduates

Each department or programme has summarised their expectations for high quality teaching and learning from September 2020.  Please see below an A-Z list of departmental and programme teaching and learning descriptions and a link to module pages for more information.

Please note if you are a returning student, joining after the first year or a postgraduate student details of your modules will be provided in August.

Final module choices for all students will not be until September 2020.

A-Z of subject disciplines and programmes

At the University of Exeter Business School 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. 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.

All programmes will have live small group teaching, and these 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.

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
  • a wide range of academic development workshops to support your learning
  • ongoing access to your own Academic Personal Tutor
  • 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)

Individual modules and programmes may vary so we recommend that you check your course webpages for more detailed information: https://business-school.exeter.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/modules/

Biosciences on our Penryn Campus

Your year will begin with ‘Research Week’, a week of small group teaching activities in which you will hear about a broad range of research conducted by staff and students in the department and you will have an opportunity to conduct your own mini research project in small groups on campus or in the surrounding area, provided it is safe to do so. We will also provide alternative online activities which will be available to anyone who is unable to participate in person. This week of activities will provide a taster of how the rest of your degree will unfold and will also help you settle in, get to know the academic staff, fellow students and engage with the world leading research conducted in the department.

Throughout the term, your lectures will be delivered in bite-sized blocks online and these will be available for you to access at any time. Lectures will be supported by weekly live teaching sessions on-campus, provided it is safe to do so or online via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Practical laboratory work will also take place on-campus in small groups, provided it is safe to do so and computer-based practicals will be delivered online. In some circumstances we may provide online datasets, photos or videos or ask you to collect data using kits or instructions to gain hands-on experience if it is not possible to come onto the campus.

Fieldwork is at the centre of our academic practice and we hope to provide you with practical, hands-experience in the local environment. To ensure we are able to safely deliver field trip experiences, these may take place at a different time of the Academic Year. 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 virtual, online field trips. Throughout the term you will be part of a tutorial family which will include your academic tutor and students from Years 2 and 3. You will meet online on a weekly basis enabling you to benefit from additional support and guidance. Your tutor will also offer one-to-one support throughout the year.

Biosciences on our Streatham Campus

To help you settle in to the University, we will be holding online induction sessions when you start at Exeter. You will be allocated a Personal Tutor who will meet with you online and in-person throughout the year, where safe to do so, to discuss your progress and any pastoral or wellbeing issues.

Your lectures will be delivered in bite-sized blocks that will be accessible online at any time. Some sessions for certain modules may be live streamed. One-to-one and small group tutorials led by academic staff will be held mostly online to enable you to discuss your work, ask questions and share resources. One-to-one tutorials will take place face-to-face on campus, provided it is safe to do so. We will deliver all the core laboratory skills during the year to allow you to become a safe, confident and competent laboratory worker. This will be delivered both through on-campus laboratory sessions and virtual or simulated training sessions.

For many module-specific practicals, we will provide demonstrations to ensure exposure to a wide range of techniques. These will be supplemented with hands-on activities during Term 3, provided it is safe to do so. Data analysis is a key component of our practical skills training and this will be delivered via a blend of group tutorials and guided follow-up activities.

Geography and Environmental Science at the Penryn Campus

As part of Welcome Week, you will be able to take part in activities that will help you settle in to university life. You will be allocated a Personal Tutor who will meet with you online and in-person throughout the year to discuss your study progress and any pastoral or wellbeing issues.

We expect many of our lectures to be provided as online bite-sized sessions accessible at any time but we will also provide teaching sessions face-to-face on-campus provided it is safe to do so, or via live streaming. Seminars and academic tutorials will also be delivered in a mixture of ways including face-to-face on-campus and online via Microsoft Teams. These will include both one-to-one and small group tutorials comprising breakout sessions, academic skills tutorials, group projects, all supported by online discussion forums. For certain modules, computer laboratory sessions may take place online with pre-prepared datasets to enable analysis.

Fieldwork is at the centre of our academic practice and we want to ensure it remains within our programmes. To ensure we are able to safely deliver field trip experiences, these may take place at a different time of the Academic Year. This is being regularly reviewed. Other short field trips will either take place in smaller groups, provided it is safe to do so or be delivered virtually and online. We will also use self-directed, student-led field trips, such as environmental monitoring in accessible parks or gardens, to supplement field work.

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.
