COVID-19: Placements

Studying at RGU


Advice for current and prospective RGU students on placement.

Study Placements

How are the placements for the next Term going to be affected if the classes are to be taught online?

Often, placements are an essential element of the course. The university is continuing to monitor the situation and we are working with our normal placement providers to ensure that our students can continue to have a safe placement experience. If placements are restricted due to public health measures, alternative arrangements will be planned for and course teams will communicate this information when it is appropriate to do so.

Guidance for all RGU students, except those enrolled in the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Paramedic Practice

I have a long term condition. What should I do?

If you commenced your Nursing, Midwifery, or Paramedic course from September 2020 onwards, you will have been screened as part of your Occupational Health questionnaire. If you commenced your course prior to September 2020, an additional screening questionnaire was sent to you for completion.

If you have any queries please contact

I am pregnant. What should I do?

Students under 28 weeks pregnant can continue on placement with regular risk assessments carried out. Please contact so we can keep a track of your progress and address any concerns you may have.

Any student above 28 weeks pregnant should contact and we will discuss your case on an individual basis. If students have underlaying conditions or complications with their pregnancy, then they will need to be referred to our occupational health and safety provider for review.
