Swansea University has announced that it is confident it will be open and ready to teach in time for the new academic year beginning in September 2020.
The announcement was made on the Swansea University website where it was insisted that all courses will be delivered both online and face-to-face.
The plan is to begin face-to-face teaching with no large lectures to take place at the beginning as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The University is in the midst of preparing for September to enable students to enrol online as well as an online induction and welcome week.
Swansea University insisted that accommodation will be available as normal with the appropriate and required social distancing protocols in place.
Should quarantine rules be in place at that stage, in cases where students may usually travel from abroad to study, the university will contact them with information about measures that need to be taken and how the university can help to support these students.
As plans begin to come together and staff are working hard to get everything in place, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Martin Stringer, commented on the announcement.
He said: “Swansea University is shaping its delivery to ensure that despite any travel restrictions, and regardless of wherever its students are, it will ensure that all students – whether in Swansea, elsewhere in the UK, or across the world and joining a little later in the academic year when circumstances allow – will be fully part of our University community.”
“The health, safety and support of our students and staff are our first priority in all that we do.”
He explained: “We will provide more details in the coming weeks to keep people up-to-date with our plans, and look forward to welcoming students and staff.”
