The health and wellbeing of our students and colleagues remain our top priority and we continue to review all of our work at Warwick in relation to Covid 19.

As you will be aware from an email from the University Vice-Chancellor Stuart Croft and Students’ Union President Ben Newsham sent to all students on Monday 16 March, there will be no face to face teaching or examinations from now and for the remainder of the 2019/20 academic year. You can also refer to his latest update on Thursday 19th March.

We are working very rapidly to further develop our tools, training and support to provide online alternatives to face to face teaching and exams.

Please also refer to the University FAQs relating to the coronavirus outbreak.

There will be no face to face teaching or assessments in Term 3.

 

  • Moving online in an emergency situation is clearly not the kind of student experience we aim for at Warwick in normal circumstances. We are committed, however, to continuing to provide you with access to content and learning, to interact with staff and peers, to assessment and to learning support so that you can continue to study and succeed as intended – although in very different circumstances and these will vary between departments. The steps we are taking to ensure this can be achieved are based on expert guidance and collaboration with peer institutions.

 

  • Please make sure that you keep the University updated on your current address through my.warwick

 

  • If you are a Tier 4 visa holder and you will not be in the UK for a period greater than 3 months, then you will need to request a change in the study location. To request a change in study location please see guidance here and then contact the support office (postgradmaths@warwick.ac.uk) with details of the dates that you will be leaving, returning (assume next academic year) and your new address.
  • The University is working on operational guidance about access to online assessments and what will happen for any students who have issues with an assessment. We realise that this is a new situation which may cause concerns and that you would like information about “what if” situations. However, we are sure that you are aware that this is a new situation for all universities and it will take a bit of time to work through the implications. We think it is of paramount importance that whatever information we provide is thought through carefully and accurate so thank you for patience whilst the guidance is being developed.
  • Although we don’t have specific information yet, sensible precautions to take would be trying to ensure that during term 3 you will;
    • have access to a reliable internet connection
    • be able to access university websites including Moodle and Tabula
    • be able to find a quiet place to sit a timed examination in case these are chosen for your modules.
