How we are dealing with Covid-19

As the Covid restrictions have eased in the UK, we were able to welcome thousands of students back to campus in September 2021 to fully enjoy what we have to offer.

The health and safety of our students and staff does remain our priority though, so we will be updating our guidance as the situation demands it.
