Important notices about the University's response to Coronavirus and what this means for our students.  Please read (Coronavirus Information: New Students, and Coronavirus Information: Continuing Students).

Coronavirus information: New Students

Due to the fast-moving situation around the Covid 19 pandemic we would like to draw your attention to University’s current response and what this will mean for you as a student at the University of Glasgow.  Please visit the FAQs for new students.  We would also refer you to a communication you received from the University (please see links below), setting out aspects of our response, including our decision to move most learning and teaching online for the start of the academic year.

We would also like to draw your attention to particular aspects of the student contract which allow us to respond to changing circumstances related to the pandemic.  Whilst we will always act in the best interest of students and seek to minimise disruption, we may be required due to public health guidance and relevant consequences of this to make changes to how we deliver our services to you in the future.

By completing the registration process you will be acknowledging these circumstances, our response to them and agreeing to the terms of the Student Contract.


Coronavirus information: Continuing Students

We appreciate your experience of the University will be different in the 2020/21 academic year.  Given that, we would like to refer you to our FAQs for continuing students (which will be updated on a regular basis).  The changes we have implemented in response to the pandemic mean that the service we are providing to you will change due to circumstances beyond our control.  We would also refer you to a communication you received from the University Principal, setting out aspects of our response, including our decision to move most learning and teaching online. Finally, we would like to highlight changes to aspects of the student contract (particularly section 10.2 (g)) which allow the University to implement further changes if required to do so because of circumstances surrounding the pandemic. Whilst we will always act in the best interest of students and seek to minimise disruption, due to public health guidance and any relevant consequences of this we may be required to make changes to how we deliver our services to you in the future.

By completing the registration process you will be acknowledging these circumstances, our response to them and providing your consent to the changes in delivery and to the terms of the student contract.
