Academic Programme Delivery and Timetables 2020-2021

In compliance with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, which is of upmost importance to us, modules will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2020-2021.

Students will engage in online learning and some on-campus learning as follows:

  • Live online (synchronous) lectures/tutorials – delivered via Canvas Conferences or MS Teams.
  • Pre-recorded (asynchronous) lectures/tutorials – delivered through Canvas.
  • Virtual laboratory classes –  provided by Labster and run through Canvas.
  • On-campus learning –  some on-campus 3rd year wet laboratory classes and on-campus 4th year research projects will be provided.

Please note that the COVID-19 situation is ongoing and we may need to make changes in response to external factors. The teaching outline is based on the current situation/guidelines and may be subject to change.
