The modality of education delivery will naturally depend on the Covid-19 pandemic status and local conditions, but it is anticipated that the majority of teaching during the 2021/22 academic session will be in-person. The University has clear guidelines & plans for moving between online teaching and in-person teaching as needed. The primary concern underlying all these plans is for the safety of staff and students.
