Working in a COVID-19 secure environment

We have been working extensively to ensure that our staff and students can return with confidence to a COVID-secure environment. The academic year has now started, teaching has begun and we have welcomed students back to campus. Our staff and students have worked tirelessly to support others and make a difference during the coronavirus pandemic. We also want to congratulate five members of staff who have been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, including a knighthood. While we know there are many unsung heroes throughout our community, we are proud that these individuals have been recognised at this level for their outstanding contributions during this challenging time.

We are acutely aware of the ever-changing local and national public health situation, and we are prepared for a variety of possible scenarios ahead.
