Teaching Provision for your programme of study for Semester 2, January 2022

Your timetables are updated for Semester 2 and reflect our intention to do as much small group teaching on campus as possible, with lectures and larger classes mostly delivered online.

Please know that our number one priority continues to be the health, safety and wellbeing of every member of our community, and we will continue to follow Scottish government guidance whilst supporting your studies with us.

We will continue to require face coverings in teaching spaces and have an enhanced cleaning regime in place. Our expectation continues to be that students will be joining us by the 15th January wherever possible.

However, we know that some students now find themselves unable to travel to the University to continue their studies with us as a result of extenuating circumstances, such as travel restrictions, unavailability of accommodation or medical concerns.

We are writing to you because we believe you are not already with us in Glasgow, and may not yet have confirmed travel and accommodation plans for semester two. If this is the case for you, then it is essential that you let us know about any possible delay to, or difficulty with your arrival, so we can provide appropriate support and guidance.

As indicated earlier in semester 1, we are unable to provide online learning on all our courses and programmes. However, we intend to support you as much as possible in completing your studies where we can. Schools and programmes are considering a range of ways in which they could do so if you find you are unable to travel or secure appropriate accommodation. Please read this message carefully if you are experiencing difficulties in arranging your arrival because it remains the case for a number of programmes and courses that a physical presence is essential to meet the learning outcomes.

The degree progamme listings below indicate whether there is any flexibility available for your programme of study, noting this could take a range of forms. In some cases where there is flexibility, this may be a later arrival and in others, online study for Semester 2. We want you to understand what the options are for you and to discuss them with your School before confirming your plans.

If you are required by your programme to be in Glasgow in semester 2 and you are unable to join us physically, there are a range of options that may be available to you, including deferring or withdrawing your place or exiting with an alternative qualification. The key contact provided for your programme will be able to further advise you on these options and next steps as required. 

A key contact is provided for each of the degree programmes. Please follow up with that point of contact as soon as possible and before 14th December 2021. 

If you plan to travel to Glasgow but you don’t believe you can arrive by the 15 January, please also contact your programme convenor to establish whether a later arrival can be supported. If this is possible, and you are an international student, we will then need to issue you with a new CAS. Please also note that if you are an international student and wish to take advantage of the UK’s Graduate Route post-graduation, you will need to be physically in the UK to complete your studies by the 6 April. For more information on the Graduate Route, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/graduate-visa  

If you are unsure about what options are available to you, please follow up with the contacts listed on the web page in the first instance, they will be able to provide you with further guidance.  

Our aim is to minimise the impact on your academic journey wherever feasible, and colleagues are working hard to provide as much flexibility and support as we can to ensure you can successfully complete your degree outcomes.
