Welcoming you to Winchester this September

Welcome to the 2021/21 academic year

We cannot wait to welcome you to Winchester and look forward to being back together as a vibrant community once more.

We are planning for courses to be delivered primarily in person, face-to-face on the University campus or associated facilities for the 2021/22 academic year (except for those courses validated as distance learning).

If the government require us to do so for public health reasons, we are ready to convert to a combination of face-to-face and online teaching or online teaching only.

All students are now expected back on campus. We know that for some of you returning to campus may be a daunting experience. We are continuing our enhanced touchpoint cleaning regime next year, and support all students and staff who wish to continue wearing a mask in communal spaces. We continue to encourage all students and staff to get tested regularly, and we will support you both academically and pastorally if you have to self-isolate. We encourage all students and staff to ensure they are vaccinated.

For more information on Covid and campus life this year, please see our Covid and campus life information page.

Your Student Guide

Written for returning and new students, the Student Guide is intended to supplement information provided to you by your Faculty or programme in order to give you an overview of the academic and personal support available within the University.

It also outlines the Academic and Assessment Regulations, all of which you need to abide by each year.
