Advice for Undergraduate Students
In light of the current Covid-19 situation, we have set up a student hub to provide support and guidance for Law students. We hope that this page will answer your questions, but please do direct any further questions to our Student Services Team and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
We now have a provisional list of modules we will attempt to load you onto in October for the 20/21 academic year. Where a module is oversubscribed and we cannot fit every student on, but have a waiting list in place, we have given priority to our final year students, and then by the order of priority you selected when you chose your modules to begin with. Find out more.
1st Year QLD Assessments
In light of the SRA's guidance, Warwick Law School proposes the following alternative arrangements for assessment of FLK subjects.
The University no longer issues transcripts to undergraduate students. You are instead provided with a Higher Education Achievement Report. Please take the opportunity to read the guidance provided by the University on how to access this. You will be notified by the University when these have been updated for this academic year. You are respectfully asked NOT to chase the University for these. Kindly note that the Law School is also unable to provide transcripts.
The September examinations will take place on line between 2-15 September 2020. A timetable is expected to be released around 13 August. All students who are being offered the opportunity to resit will have been contacted by the department with details of the requirements including essay titles. All essays must be submitted via Tabula no later than 14:00 on Friday 28 August. If you are submitting an essay for a module outside of the Law school please check the submission requirements with the department running the module. If you have any questions please direct them to law reception.
1st Year Certificate
Following the decision to cancel examinations for 1st year students, the University has developed the ‘Warwick Online Learning Certificate (WOLC)’ The aim of the certificate is to deliver learning & development to all first year students in place of the curriculum that would have taken place this term.
Engagement with the certificate is optional, but students who are interested are welcome to get further details via the link above.
The Examination timetable has now been released to students, and is available on the Exam website.
You are also able to access your personal timetable via the Alternative Exams Portal (AEP). Please take the opportunity to use the ‘practise’ facility ahead of the exams.
Statutes to support the on-line exams will be made available on the Module Moodle pages for students to reference.
If you have University recommended reasonable adjustments the approved time should be added to the two/three hours. A guide to help students who have reasonable adjustments on how to manage on-line exams is available. Please take the time to check you have the recommended facilities available to you ahead of the exams.
All assignments have been given an automatic two week extension by the University which should now be reflected in Tabula. If you are taking a module from a department that does not use Tabula (for example Warwick Business School) please contact them directly for further information.
If you wish to apply for an extension beyond the 14 days you may do so. Please ensure that you read the information for students on the Tabula application form before doing so.
Qualifying Law Degree
The Law School is working with the SRA to see how the Qualifying Degree will be achieved taking into account any changes to the 1st year examinations.
We understand that not all students will have access to reliable internet connections and ask that you please let Law Reception know if this is the case. Should you have issues accessing Moodle or submitting via Tabula, please email the Law Technology team including screenshots of the problem as soon as you are able.
We recommend trying to submit your exam or assignment with at least three hours to spare, but if you are having issues at this point please email Law Technology if you are able, or telephone 024 76 5 23157.
For borderline cases, moderation and marking of open book exams - The Law School will be following University guidance; as and when further information is available students will be informed./p>
The University has put together a ‘safety net' package of measures to ensure that undergraduate students are not disadvantaged by unfamiliar and new types of assessment or teaching, as well as other personal circumstances arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any further questions relating to this please email Law Reception.
We appreciate that library resources are limited. Please be assured that our librarians are working hard behind the scenes to grow the number of on-line resources available.
Students due to Study Abroad in 20/21
The University advice is that students should not make any flight or accommodation commitments or to take on any additional costs until the situation becomes clearer. Please check the University's website for ongoing guidance.
If you are informed by the Host University that your proposed year abroad has been changed please notify the Student Mobility team and the Law School immediately.
