Dear Student,

I hope you had a restful Easter break, and are managing to keep as safe and well as possible.

We are aware that you might still have questions about how our no-detriment measures could apply to your academic circumstances, and how they will work within your programme requirements. We have produced additional guidance that you may find helpful in answering these.

Please note that full classification safety-net detail is not yet available for all types of study. In particular, postgraduate taught no-detriment detail is yet to be agreed by Senate (the University committee with responsibility for all matters relating to learning and teaching). Further information will be issued as soon as it is available, and we will keep you informed.

We will update you as soon as we can about other relevant policies and procedures relating to assessment, no-detriment measures, and academic decision-making soon. I’d like to thank you for your continued patience as our staff continue their hard work to respond to this extraordinary disruption.

If you have any questions related to your specific academic context your Director of Studies and/or personal tutor should be able to help. We will keep the FAQ page regularly updated and be in touch with new versions of this document and other guidance.

Best wishes,
