The School of Computer Science is busy making preparations for the start of our programme delivery in September 2020.
Despite the challenges posed by Covid-19 to our programme delivery, we are determined to offer a high quality learning experience to ensure you develop technical, practical, academic and softer, professional skills.
We know you need a supportive environment where learning is scaffolded, teaching is delivered using a range of blended and flexible approaches, and skills are developed incrementally. We also appreciate the need for a friendly learning environment, with peer-supported learning and regular tutor feedback.
While respecting student safety and distancing, we are identifying weekly on campus sessions for practical tuition and individual, personal support. Specialist labs (e.g. networking, games and cyber security) will still be used, while other sessions will be delivered online using conference technology (Big Blue Button and Microsoft Teams) and other online structured learning opportunities for collaborative working, discussions, synchronous and asynchronous engagement and regular feedback.
Our work based assessments are flexible and have been adapted to support students whose working life has been impacted because of Covid-19. We will continue to be flexible as necessary.
In the coming months, before commencing your studies, please contact your Programme Leaders if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
