We aim is to provide as much face to face teaching as possible whilst also maintaining social distancing and keeping our students/staff as safe as possible. We know that your decision to go to university isn't just about learning, it is also about other experiences and we aim to ensure you get everything you are looking for, although a little different. Therefore we are currently planning:
- To combine on-campus face to face and online teaching as appropriate.
- As an international student, we know that you are concerned about applying for your visa and being able to travel to the UK. We are monitoring the situation globally and will start to issue CAS once we know that the Visa Offices in your country are open and that it is possible for you to travel to the UK and arrive on campus safely.
- We expect all students to arrive in September. As a back-up, all of our courses will be available online for the whole academic year. So, if you are unable to travel to the UK and Bangor in September, you will still be able to participate fully in your course until you are able to travel.
- Social distancing measures on campus will include increased frequency of cleaning, markers and signs, one-way systems and reduced capacity in rooms.
- Student Services and Student Support services including our dedicated International Student Support service will be open on campus, so if you have any issues, needs or concerns they will be there for you.
- Where professional courses, such as nursing, require direct contact with others without social distancing, then PPE will be provided.
- Your Students' Union will be looking at ways to continue their activities online and building online communities. They will also continue to offer their support services for all students and will continue to fully represent you.
- Further information about arrival in the UK, travelling to Bangor, Welcome Week / Registration Week will be provided in due course.
- Staff on campus not directly involved in supporting students will be kept to a minimum to reduce the potential for congestion and to make it easier to maintain social distancing. All staff who are on campus will have received appropriate training.
We want you to have an amazing time with us next year and although your experience will be different to the previous study, all the staff at Bangor are creating new and exciting ways of learning and experiencing university. University is all about invention, exploring the unknown and tackling difficult challenges, this is what we do best, and this is what students come to us to learn. Now we are putting this into practice!
We look forward to welcoming you on campus!
