We look forward to welcoming you!

In 2020/21, our taught postgraduate academic year will have two different start dates - one in September and one in January.

For September starts, postgraduate welcome week begins on Monday 21 September 2020 and will follow our usual term dates. However, students travelling from abroad may wish to arrive earlier in case they need to self-isolate/quarantine. 

If you are unable to get to campus for the start of the year, we will provide online teaching and support so you can participate from wherever you are.

Some students and courses will start in January 2021 and more information will be provided for these students later in the year.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): changes to courses

We aim to deliver as much face-to-face teaching as we can, supported by high quality online alternatives where we must.
