Teaching delivery in semester one, 2020/2021

Information on the teaching experience you will have as an undergraduate student in the School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences in semester one, 2020/21

We’ve been working very hard throughout the last few months to prepare for the new academic year and to make sure that we give you the best teaching and learning experience that we can. Your safety and the safety of our staff are paramount, and we will be closely following Scottish Government guidelines. To ensure that we will be able to react quickly and responsively as the situation evolves, we have re-designed and adapted all of our courses to run with recorded lectures (which will be available to everyone, regardless of whether they are in Edinburgh or not), and synchronous tutorials (which will be held both online and in-person). Because the physical distancing requirements and health and safety requirements set by government significantly reduce classroom capacity, even those students in Edinburgh may have some of their philosophy tutorials online. But as much as possible will be in-person, and full details will be given at the start of each course, subject of course to any changes in public health guidelines that may develop as the semester progresses.

This page provides more details of what to expect, especially if you are studying online, and how to access information about the courses you will be taking.
