In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes have been made to the delivery of courses in the Department. All lectures will be held online, as well as some labs and tutorials. However, there are instances where it has been determined that face to face contact is required and in these cases students will need to be on campus. Respective Course Coordinators/Lecturers will provide updates on these on OurVLE or during the first class.

To facilitate any physical visits, the department has implemented several protocols to protect the health of visitors, staff and students. Requirements for entry to any Block include the wearing of face masks/coverings, temperature checks and the sanitizing of hands. Automatic hand sanitizers have been installed in all Blocks.

As we look to begin a new academic year, we ask that you continue to keep safe and well.
