Subject: Term 3 update

Dear all,


I hope you've all had a good break over Easter. You will have now seen the news that the Government has decided not to permit in-person teaching at Universities until 17 May. While we’re disappointed about this, we’re also looking forward to week 4 when restrictions will begin to meaningfully lift.


By the start of term 3, however, many facilities will be open on campus: dwell spaces, study spaces, the library, cafés, and sports facilities will all be open again, and the University will offer a full Warwick Presents program: You’re welcome to travel back to campus now travel restrictions have been lifted.


I will be in touch with undergraduates, postgraduates, and staff separately when HoDs have been given more information about what’s possible on campus following 17 May. Until then:


Undergraduates: please visit our usual Teaching pages for an update on Term 3: Here you will find out about our plans for in-person on-campus co-curricular activities, which we will confirm as soon as we can. You will also find a reminder of the support we’re offering to you throughout term 3, and how you can ask us for help.


Postgraduates: please visit our usual Teaching pages for an update on Term 3: The pages include similar information to that offered to undergraduates, plus a brief update on MA/PhD supervision.


Access to Humanities: if you do need access to the Humanities Building between 12­26 April, you will need to get prior approval from me by filling in this form: You will be accompanied around the building by Security. From 26 April, the Humanities Building will be open to all who have card access for teaching or brief visits. Lateral flow tests are strongly recommended prior to your visit, but are not mandated by the University.


As always, do contact me if I can help further with any queries about next term. Keep well and I hope the last two weeks of your vacation are good ones.


Best wishes,



Professor Emma Mason

Head of Department, English and Comparative Literary Studies
