29/04/2020 - Online Teaching Survey, Education Update

Online Learning Experience

Given all learning is now being delivered online, we are gathering your feedback about your online learning experiences: what's working well, what's not and what you want to see in the future. We will be using this data to lobby the university to ensure high quality online learning. The deadline for this is 23:00 Wednesday 6 May. Take the survey >> 

Education Update 

Taught Students (Undergraduates, PGT students)
No detriment Policy: As you know we have been holding the university to their promise of releasing further detail regarding continuing UG students and PGTs on no-detriment and safety-net measures. We are actively engaging with the academic registry in conversations about the policy detail to ensure that academic achievement is safeguarded. 
Online Assessments: We have been assured by the university that Exam timetables will be released by Friday at the latest. Your departments should have communicated any changes to your assessments to you.

Doctoral Students
SU senate members provided a consultation response to a recent senate paper granting a three-month fee free extension to final year doctoral students. We expressed at the Senate meeting on 22 April that the three-month fee-free extension should be available for all doctoral students given the widespread impact on our doctoral community by Covid-19. We are glad that the University has communicated with final year doctoral students its decision to grant them with the extension. We are continuing to fight for three-month fee-free extension for all doctoral students.
