Teaching, learning and supervision in 2022-23

Teaching for the academic year starting in September 2022 will depend on Covid-19 restrictions and Scottish Government guidance at the time.

Our current teaching model

For the 2021-22 academic year, our students are back in Edinburgh and we are currently delivering a mix of in-person and digital teaching.

Teaching for 2022-2023

For the 2022-2023 academic year, we anticipate that we will be able to return to an even greater in-person teaching model than we have this year. However, this will depend on Covid-19 restrictions and Scottish Government guidance at the time.

We will update all applicants on our plans for 2022-23 throughout the application process.

Research Students

For the 2021-22 academic year, our postgraduate research students are in Edinburgh and are currently being supervised and examined in person, or by a mixture of in-person and online means as best suits the student and supervisors. In addition, lab work for postgraduate research students is back to normal, while fieldwork is permitted in some cases, but disrupted in some other cases.

For the academic year starting in September 2022, we anticipate that students will be able to start or continue with in-person lab work and we will be able to enhance postgraduate research community building with more in-person activities, including research seminars. Fieldwork may continue to be disrupted and some projects may need to be adapted in 22/23. All of this will depend on Covid-19 restrictions and Scottish Government guidance at the time. We will update all applicants on our plans for 2022-23 throughout the application process.
