We are ready whatever happens come September

We know students from across the globe have concerns about how soon they might be able to get to UCB and start their course. We are planning to be able to open the campus and run our courses in the new academic year, but we know the situation is changing quickly, and so we wanted to provide some reassurance to potential students about what we would do if disruption continues.

So, we’re pleased to announce that from September first year students on most Higher Education courses will be able to study their first semester remotely, and join us on campus when they can. Students will be able to use our Canvas virtual learning environment to watch lectures, study, contact lecturers, and interact with other students. Students will also have access to UCB’s extensive library and support services. We intend that teaching will also be available on campus for those students who are able to join us, and for courses where it is not possible to teach online. For full details, including a list of courses this applies to, please see our FAQs below. 

We hope you remain safe and well, and look forward to seeing you on the UCB campus soon.
