COVID-19: Advice for Students, Staff & Community

Our dedicated COVID-19 pages provide regularly updated university information, advice and guidance.

As we continue to respond to the pandemic, our university’s delivery of learning and teaching will be guided by five principles. We will prioritise:

  • The safety and mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of all our students and staff.
  • Securing the confidence of staff, students and their families based on evidence and information so that they can plan for the session ahead.
  • Consistency with the Scottish Government’s framework for decision making and measures in place such as distancing, managing attendance and wider protective actions.
  • The ability to prioritise learners including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Alignment with the national effort to fight the spread of COVID-19.

Following the Scottish Government announcement on 4 January that mainland Scotland is now under further Tier 4 restrictions and is effectively in lockdown, the University has been working to ensure the return to teaching and learning is as safe as possible.

The vast majority of our teaching was already due to take place online. However, due to the current situation with Coronavirus and the increasing number of cases, we have further reviewed this, and extended teaching online until the beginning of March. There will be limited exceptions to this, where teaching and learning is essential and time sensitive, such as critical assessment and learning, and placements. Revised timetables will be provided next week which will give your specific teaching and learning arrangements.

We will regularly update our FAQ pages on our teaching arrangements, accommodation facilities, support services and other pertinent information as our planning progresses.
