Covid-19 Hub

An Update


Another year, another lockdown. Hopefully, with the large number of vaccines being rolled out across the UK each week, we are at last in the final stretch of the pandemic.

However, with the lack of clarity in restrictions and guidance about universities, this lockdown can be seen as the hardest yet for students. Please be assured that your Sabbatical Officers are listening to your concerns and are working with the University to make this year as fair on students as possible. You can find the work that we’ve been doing, and the big wins we’ve gained for you, on this page.

As always, this hub is here for our students to see the latest Covid news from the Students’ Union and the Sabbatical Officer team. You can also find useful links such as current government restrictions and wellbeing support. Please stay safe this lockdown, and I encourage you to get in touch with your Sabbatical Officer team with any concerns or issues you have.
