Students who are self-isolating or who test positive for COVID-19

If you are self-isolating, you can keep up with your modules by completing all the asynchronous activities, getting in touch with other students in your seminar group to discuss what was covered, and booking an appointment with your seminar tutor, to talk through what you missed. It may also be possible to switch to an online seminar; talk to the module convenor about whether this is possible.

If you have any queries please contact the Department at HistoryOffice@warwick.ac.uk

    • As well as submitting this form, please ensure that you have also contacted the University Coronavirus helpline number: 024 7652 3111.

    • The University will then log that you are self-isolating and give you advice on what to do next depending on your circumstances.

  • The Department will inform your module convenors and personal tutor that you are self-isolating and unable to attend face-to-face teaching.
  • The Department will notify any other departments in which you also taking modules.
  • Your module convenors will authorise you to attend an online seminar if a suitable one exists, and will alert the tutor of that online seminar to expect you.
  • If a suitable online seminar group exists, the seminar tutor for that online seminar will contact you and call you into the seminar once it starts.
  • If no suitable online seminar group exists, you should contact the seminar tutor to arrange to meet in office hours to discuss what was missed.
  • If no suitable online seminar group exists, you should also contact another student in the seminar group to arrange a catch-up discussion.
  • Your seminar tutors will meet with you if you contact them to request a catch-up session.
  • Your seminar tutors may hold group catch-up sessions, rather than meeting with you individually.
  • Your personal tutor will contact you to check you are ok.
  • Your seminar tutor will record your missed seminars as ‘authorised absences’ and this will not affect the mark you receive for your seminar contribution.

 

If you test positive for covid-19:

  • If you have not already been in touch with Warwick Test & Trace, you should contact them.
  • Warwick Test & Trace will contact the Department to let us know you’ve tested positive.
  • If you are a joint-degree student the Department will contact the partner department to let them know you have tested positive.
  • The Department will inform your module convenors and personal tutor that you are self-isolating and unable to attend face-to-face teaching. The Department does not at this stage indicate that the seminar needs to go online, nor does it reveal that you have tested positive.
  • Warwick Test & Trace will speak with you to discuss contact tracing. Using this information Test & Trace will determine whether any seminar groups need to self-isolate and move online, and will notify tutors accordingly.
  • Once this is done, the seminar tutor will notify affected seminar groups that someone in the seminar has tested positive and that Test & Trace has either determined that no risk was posed or that the seminar group needs to move online for a set period. Your name will not be revealed to the group.
  • Your personal tutor will contact you to check you are ok.
  • If you are not well enough to continue to study, your personal tutor will advise you to contact your seminar tutors once you are well enough to resume study, to discuss any missed work.

  • If necessary you should apply for an extension.

Seminars that move online temporarily

If there are more than four students in a seminar self-isolating or otherwise unable to come onto campus for in person teaching, then the seminar tutor may make the decision to move the seminar online for a period.

The tutor will email all students on the module to let them know the new arrangements for the seminar. The tabula timetable will be changed to make it clear the seminar is online.
