However, teaching will be delivered by a blend of pre-recorded material & personal online tutoring. We will adapt our timetables, teaching methods and course content to make the most of this exciting approach. The balance of in-person classroom and online teaching will depend on the stringency of social distancing and other regulations in force at the time.
For students who are unwilling or unable to do anything in person, it will be 100% possible to complete all coursework remotely via online engagement in 2020 (details about 2021 are to be decided).
