The Department aims to deliver up to 50% of seminars/tutorials/lab sessions in-person across the programmes, giving each student the opportunity to attend at least one taught in-person on campus session per module per week (access to campus permitting and in accordance with the up-to-date social distancing requirements).
Tutorials and discussion-based sessions will be delivered in-person on campus with synchronous online (live) delivery using conferencing tools such as Blackboard Collaborate/MS Teams for students who are not able to attend in person.
