Latest update – 11 May 2021
In February 2021, the government set out a roadmap for the easing of national restrictions. See the full detail below. Further to this, on Monday 10 May the government confirmed the arrangements for returning to in-person teaching for higher education providers. See the updated FAQs for more information.
In February 2021. the government set out a roadmap for the easing of national restrictions, with detailed guidance subsequently provided by the Department for Education.
The government roadmap allowed for the return to on-campus teaching for students studying specific practical or practice-based subjects requiring specialist equipment and facilities from 8 March, whilst also stating that students should not be asked to return if their courses can reasonably be continued online.
On 13 April the government confirmed that remaining students will not be able to return to in-person teaching until Step 3 in the Roadmap Out of Lockdown, which is due to take place on Monday 17 May.
We appreciate that for the vast majority of students this will be after the end of their timetabled teaching and we understand how disappointing this is.
All students accessing campus are expected to take asymptomatic lateral flow tests twice a week, three days apart, until further notice. This can either be through the on-campus Test Centre, home tests, or from 17 May, by collecting tests from the Fountains Court Common Room via the new Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Collect service for Higher Education Institutions. This service will be initially be available from 12.00pm to 4.00pm Monday to Friday. If you have any questions about testing, please email email@example.com.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff has guided the University's response throughout the pandemic, and keeping our community safe continues to be our priority. With this in mind, the campus protocols relating to social distancing, the wearing of face masks etc will remain in place on campus for the time being. We will monitor government guidance and local and national data in the coming weeks as the impact of Step 3 of the government roadmap becomes clear, and will advise when our campus protocols will be lifted.
We understand that this remains a worrying time for our students and we are here to support them. We have a programme of safe social activity available to help keep them connected, and our support services will remain open with extended hours should they have any questions or need advice. Students should see myLTU for details or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific queries.
