CoronavirusCOVID beyond Level 0

Glasgow moved beyond Level 0 on Monday 9 August 2021. The University is open with a number of safety measures in place

As the First Minister noted, this is clearly not the end of the pandemic and we have a collective responsibility to exercise care and caution to continue to suppress the virus.  Protection measures will still be required, including the wearing of face coverings in all the same indoor settings as is currently the case, unless you are exempt.  

On physical distancing, even though the law will not require a specific distance, the Scottish Government continues to advise that, especially indoors, people should keep a reasonable distance from other people and avoid places that are crowded. Find out more about our approach to physical distancing

Learning & teaching 

On-campus learning has resumed, combined with online activities, for all our learners, which will be phased according to the needs of the programme. Read more about our plans for the Academic Year 2021/2022.
