You can find all the information you need about starting at the University Centre West Anglia in September on this dedicated page on our website. 

In light of the current situation regarding Covid-19, from September 2020, all of our main degree and higher national programmes will be delivered in a 'blended learning' mode. This means that the majority of your study will be based remotely with some on-campus lectures, seminars and tutorials. This will be kept under review in line with government guidance but will remain in place for the foreseeable future (our current plans are expected to continue until Christmas, at least).

Our academic staff at the university centre are working hard to confirm our new blended learning timetables. It may be that we are unable to confirm some timetables until week commencing 31st August. We know how important it is for you to have your timetables, or at least the days you are expected to attend campus, and will endeavour to get the information to you as soon as we can. We will continue to update this page throughout the summer and will send you a text if there are any changes or updates. In the meantime, you can watch our general Introduction to UcWA webinar (a recording from our recent applicant event) to get more of an idea about life at the university centre and how we can support you through remote study.
