Start of year for undergraduates - your questions answered
Here in the Faculty of Science and Engineering we understand that our undergraduate students – both current students and offer-holders – are likely to have concerns about how the ongoing COVID-19 crisis might affect their studies.
This is why we're doing our very best to keep you updated in the lead-up to the new academic year. As such, we'll be answering your questions in a series of video updates.
In this first video, Education Officer in the Students' Union Chloe Salin speaks to the Heads of Education for our Faculty's two Schools – Professor Peter Green in the School of Engineering and Professor Andrew Horn in the School of Natural Sciences – about their plans for a new-look teaching and learning experience.
You'll hear all about the benefits of blended learning; safety on campus; being part of the Manchester community (and student societies); lab, field and group work; exams and assessment; accessing software; and remote learning.
It's a lot to cover, but we hope the video will help to reassure you that this year's university experience will be what you expect from a university ranked 27th in the world for two years running.
Please bear in mind that this is what we know right now. We'll provide more information, as and when we have it, in the videos to come.
If you have any questions you would like to ask, please send them through to your Department Admissions or Student Experience Team. They will then be either answered directly, or in one of the upcoming videos.
