COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Advice

Information for students, prospective students, staff and the community on the University's response to COVID-19.

Our campus is fully open and operational.

For the 2022/3 academic year, we anticipate the delivery of our learning and teaching to be much as it was prior to the pandemic, while retaining some of the recent technological developments where those developments enhance the student experience. 

Please be reassured that the University is following guidance from Health Protection Scotland and the Scottish and UK governments.
