Safe return to campus

We understand that you will be keen to know all about what life will be like on the University campus when you return for Trimester B or join us for the first time in January. We have been working hard to put robust plans in place to ensure your safe and phased return to campus. 

To ensure everyone’s safety for the trimester ahead, and in accordance with current Scottish Government guidance, the university will be continuing with our blended learning approach implemented in Tri A, offering a mixture of online learning and teaching and, face to face teaching on campus.  

Face-to face teaching will be limited to small ‘socially distanced’ group teaching for some students, with low numbers of students and staff on campus at any one time.

The amount of on campus teaching will vary across programmes, depending on the modules you are undertaking.

Ahead of Trimester B you will receive an email from your Programme Team to confirm exactly what Trimester B will look like for you in the meantime we can confirm timetables from Trimester B will be available from 18 December, 2020.

Our video, 'Student guide to getting around our Glasgow campus safely', will give you a good insight into what campus will look like and will help you navigate the health and safety processes we have put in place to ensure you are able to take responsibility for your own wellbeing and that of others.

As you will be aware, we are operating in a rapidly changing environment at the moment and our plans are subject to alteration as Scottish Government guidelines change.   If we need to make any further changes to the arrangements for January we will of course let you know. So, please do check your university email account or this website regularly to keep up to date with the latest information for Trimester B.

Coming on campus

The University has been working hard on our safe return to campus plans for 2020/21. The health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff continues to be our highest priority. We’ve made some changes on campus and there are important guidelines that you will have to follow. We expect all students to take responsibility for their own safety and that of others in the GCU community and sign up to the GCU COVID-19 Pledge

GCU COVID-19 Pledge

The Short course has been produced to explain what we have put in place and what we except you to do when you come on to campus.
