Issued to our Students
We are currently investigating the logistics of new covid-19 lateral flow testing following Welsh Government’s announcement (11 November).
Ensuring our students who wish to do so can travel home safely for Christmas has always been our priority and we are therefore encouraging you to arrange to travel home after your last on-campus activity to allow for a safe exit.
Please be reassured that any students planning to stay in their University accommodation over the Christmas period will still be able to do so and there will be support measures in place.
In order to minimise the possibility of taking the infection home Welsh Government are asking students to minimise social contacts in the run up to the end of term.
The University will inform you of plans for concluding in-person teaching for this term and also arrangements for those in accommodation to exit campuses safely. We plan to continue the delivery of blended teaching in January in-line with health and safety regulations and Government guidance
We will continue to work closely with the Welsh Government in the run up to Christmas to support our students and will keep you updated regarding testing plans.
