Bangor University prepares for September
Staff at Bangor University are currently preparing for the new academic year in September, despite the uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The University has now confirmed to all its students, new and returning, that it plans for the campus to be open in September. Because of the likely need to have social distancing measures in place, the University is currently planning on combining on campus face-to-face teaching with online teaching. University student accommodation will also be open.
Due to the current restrictions, the University has recently been running virtual open days instead of its usual on campus events, and regular updates are also being sent to new and returning students. The many surveys that have been conducted with students show that they are all keen to be on campus for their studies so the University is working hard to enable this to happen whilst keeping students, staff and the local community safe.
Work is continuing to plan the detail of the opening to students in September and this will be shared as it becomes available.
