Learning and teaching

Our dedicated academic and professional support staff have been working extremely hard over the past months to make sure you have the best possible learning experience. Our blended learning approach will encompass both online and, where possible, on-campus teaching. To ensure everyone’s safety for the trimester ahead, there will be a limited amount of face-to-face, small ‘socially distanced’ group teaching for some students, with low numbers of students and staff on campus at any one time. We anticipate that on-campus activity will increase as the rules are eased.

Within the module pages for your course in GCU Learn, you will find a range of information about your modules, such as; your week to week schedule, learning objectives, events and learning materials like podcasts and videos you can access anytime to support your learning.

In Trimester A, all lectures will be delivered online. Typically, these will not be ‘live’ but instead will include a variety of activities, readings and short recorded materials for you to engage with. 

Our specialist spaces - such as laboratories, simulation suites, skills classes and workshops - have been equipped and the layout amended to enable safe on-campus working.

You will find assessment information for your course and the modules you will be studying this trimester in GCU Learn.

We will be doing everything we can to make sure you can enjoy learning, create new friendships and feel part of our GCU community!

Our learning development centres will be operating remotely and will be able to provide you with a range of learning support information, workshops and advice.

We have also produced a range of resources to support your online learning, which can be found on GCU Learn.
