Our COVID-19 contigency plans for 2020-2021
The provision of excellence in health care has never been more important. At a time of national and global crisis, we swiftly adapted to changes and maximised opportunities for learning on our Physician Associate MSc. As a teaching team, our priorities are the safety and well-being of our students, as well as the provision of excellence in PA education. Here is what you should know about the upcoming academic year (2020-2021).
The academic year will start as normal and term dates will not be changed. However, teaching will be delivered by a blend of in-person and online teaching, and we will adapt our timetables, teaching methods and course content to make the most of this approach. The balance of the blend will depend on the stringency of social distancing and other regulations in force at the time.
Students' praise for our move to online teaching:
“The PA team at BSMS have managed to supplement face to face teaching with online alternatives in a way that still gives us all the learning and support that we have required.”
"The Covid-19 pandemic stopped the entire world, but not the PA course. We were able to continue online and it felt just like being in university - very helpful"
