We will continue to follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our students and staff and have put in place additional safety measures, including the way we deliver your course.
For Semester 1, we plan to deliver your course through a mixture of online and face to face tuition and we will review this as Government guidelines change in response to COVID-19 developments.
Under the present guidelines, we plan to deliver your course 15% online and 85% face to face. We will timetable, where possible, so that you come into the University Centre Leeds for a whole day and you will be in a bubble with your fellow students on your course.
Face to face contact will be delivered following guidelines on social distancing and increased health and safety measures. You will be made fully aware of the current measures in place and be expected to follow the guidance issued.
