Coronavirus advice and guidance

We want to keep you informed about our University’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

Our frequently asked questions (FAQs) below provide the latest information and advice based on national guidance and our own planning.

We’re adding information every day, so please do use this Advice and Guidance web page as the place to go for the latest updates. The FAQs cover information for students, staff and applicants, as well as visitors to the University. We might not have all the answers you’re looking for at the moment given this is an unprecedented situation, but we’ll try to find out for you.

Meanwhile we'll be monitoring the situation closely and are following the official advice from Public Health England and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as well as guidance from the Department for Education and Universities UK.
