Learning and Teaching Academic Year 2020/21

Since Monday 23 March 2020, teaching has been delivered via online methods only. We remain committed to the highest standard of delivery. Online delivery requires as much commitment and engagement from students as face to face learning does and we expect all students to engage with the online learning. We appreciate many students have devices that will support online learning but if you have any issues with either devices or connectivity please discuss this with your course leader. 

Please follow the guidance on the IT Services website for remote studying from home. This will guide you on how to attend online virtual classes and submit all your assessments from home  https://its.uos.ac.uk/content/students

Placements: For students where work based experience is integral and mandatory to achieving professional body requirements and therefore outcome qualification (including health and social care placements) we will be communicating directly to those students.

Our University is committed to providing you with a high quality learning and teaching experience; one which will support you in completing the learning, progressing through your studies and achieving your goals and aspirations.

We are conscious that the coming academic year may be one with some uncertainties, but regardless of any ongoing social distancing measures, we have taken steps and made plans to ensure that the learning experience for our new and returning students is one that will keep you safe, provide face to-face on campus learning and further learning through online learning.

The questions below answer some of the questions you may have about how your course will be delivered next academic year. You should also read the information for students, or applicants that we have published in relation to your wider university experience.
