Academic Year 20/21
When our first semester gets underway on 21 September, we will welcome our University community back to a different, but rich and rewarding, blended learning environment. Alongside continued online delivery, some on-campus activities will take place, based on a robust risk assessment, with priority given to using campus spaces for practice-based learning activities, including lab and studio work.
Our primary concern is the physical and mental health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff, their families and the wider community. Nothing is more important.
Our preparations are informed by the progress and pace of the NI Executive’s phased roadmap to recovery and we will ready to respond flexibly to any changes in public health guidance.
Whilst initially we may not all be together on campus as we once were, you will still be very much part of a vibrant Ulster University community of staff and students as our 2020/21 academic year gets underway.
