Assessment: a package of measures to mitigate the impact of Coronavirus

The University has agreed a package of measures to support students with their studies during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

 The new measures affect decisions taken at the end of the year about your courses, progression and degree classification.

Purpose of the measures

The measures take account of the ongoing impact of the pandemic on students’ ability to study as normal, paying particular attention to the needs of students with caring, and employment commitments.

We have designed the package of measures to ensure that all students have an opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities in assessment, and to prevent the pandemic from having an unreasonably negative impact upon degree outcomes.

The measures cover a range of areas, which are described in more detail below.
