For students at risk associated with Covid-19:

Students who cannot attend lessons in person because they are in a risk group for COVID-19 and need special accommodation, must provide a physician's statement documenting this. Students who are in quarantine and need short-term accommodation do not need any documentation.

Students must contact the student adviser for your programme of study to arrange special needs accommodation.

  • You need special teaching arrangements
