Studying at York

Autumn 2020: changes to the way you study

Our aim is to deliver as much face-to-face teaching as possible and to deliver online teaching where we need to. 

All large lectures are already routinely recorded and these lectures will be delivered solely online in Autumn Term 2020. This will free up lecture theatres and ensure we have sufficient space to safely deliver face-to-face teaching such as seminars, tutorials and small groups. Changeover times between taught sessions will be managed with staggered starts to minimise large gatherings of people.

Where appropriate, our academic departments are re-ordering the curriculum so that lab work, studio work, performances and field trips can be undertaken later during your studies when Covid-19 risk levels are lower.

Exams and assessments will continue to be delivered online for the time being.

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 until you're able to get to York.

Our Library will be open with safety measures in place; they’ll also offer a click and collect service for books. There’ll be fewer study spaces in the Library, but we’re planning to make more spaces available elsewhere on campus.
