Bishop Grosseteste University plans face-to-face teaching from September

Studies could begin to return to normal soon

By Local Democracy Reporter

Face-to-face teaching is being planned by Bishop Grosseteste University, with hopes to deliver it from September.

The uphill university said it will ensure students can meet tutors in person for the next academic year, despite the ongoing threat of COVID-19.

BGU are anticipating on-campus learning to restart in September for the 2020/21 year, with social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures in place.

These plans drawn up by the university will allow for programmes and courses to be delivered through a balance of face-to-face seminars and online lectures.

Large gatherings for lectures and other studies may well be restricted as a result of social distancing, but will slowly be phased back to normality as per the government guidance.

A spokesperson for BGU said: “Regardless of the style of learning, all our students and applicants can expect the high quality of teaching for which we are renowned.

“The safety of our students, staff and wider community will remain our priority¬†and every decision will be made with that in mind and informed by government guidance.”
