The Department will be operating a full teaching schedule in 2020/21, from when our new academic year begins on 28 September. We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning students whether on campus, online or a mix of the two. We are making plans to ensure we continue to provide a stimulating and engaging experience to suit all students' circumstances, even if these change through the academic year. On all our programmes we will continue to be a friendly community of staff and students, and to offer a supportive experience for students through well-designed teaching to provide theoretical and practical skills with a research-led ethos, in individual, small-group and large-group teaching formats, whether in person or online. Professor James Moir, Head of Department
