What is an 'indicative schedule'?

Teaching in Semester 1 will be delivered by way of a blended model with a mix of on-campus and online teaching and learning. The amount of on-campus teaching will differ in individual programmes based on their size and modes of delivery (e.g. lab-based teaching, tutorials, seminars, practical components, etc.). Large-scale lectures will be adapted for online delivery, as well as some smaller classes where it is not possible and safe to deliver them on-campus.

The indicative schedules below indicate the balance of on-campus and online activity by subject area for each programme. We are making as much information as possible available to students now to help them prepare for the semester ahead.

When will I get my programme timetable?

Our Schools are continuing to work on finalising individual programme timetables, so that they can share details of the days, times and venues of on-campus classes with students in September before Semester 1 recommences, consistent with previous years. These details must be worked out carefully to ensure that capacity and access comply with public health guidelines. We thank you for your continued patience.

What if I am unable to come to campus in Semester 1?

We understand that a small number of students will be unable to come to campus in Semester 1 due to their own personal health, access or other reasons. This may, for example, be due to local lockdowns in their home locations. We will work to accommodate these students so as not to disadvantage their academic journey, until such time as they can safely come to campus. We are working hard to ensure that all learning will be made available online or accessible through some alternative means.

The indicative schedule for my programme is 'TBC'. What does that mean?

TBC - to be confirmed. In the case of a small number of undergraduate programmes and most postgraduate programmes, Schools are still finalising details or there is a delay in formatting the data for upload. We will update the details below as new information becomes available. Please check back shortly. Thank you for your continued patience.
