How your course will be delivered

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Brunel.

Programmes starting in January 2021 

We will be doing things a little bit differently because of COVID-19, and that includes making changes to the way we teach so that you can start or continue your studies with us whatever your circumstances - all the while feeling confident that your safety is our number one priority. 

For 2020/21, all of our programmes will be delivered *online, while we will also be making as much teaching available on campus as social distancing allows. All of our students will get the same number of teaching hours as in previous years, sometimes more, and every week that will include live, interactive sessions – online or on campus – so that you can engage and collaborate with your fellow students and lecturers.  

*Universities can deliver fully online teaching to Tier 4/sponsored students for the 2020/21 academic year, however, there is an expectation from the UKVI that students sponsored for a visa will come to the UK as soon as the circumstances allow. Therefore, we may not be able to sponsor students to study online from September 2021.
