The University of Salford has pledged that every student across all of their courses will have face-to-face time with lecturers in their first term, as they set out their approach for the return of teaching amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Pro Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience, Dr Sam Grogan, took to Vimeo with a recorded message aimed at answering some of the questions and concerns of prospective students ahead of the new academic year.
In it, Dr Grogan says that large lectures will be moved online to make space for smaller seminars and workshops, giving students the chance to talk through topics and test their understanding among peers and lecturers.
Salford, who have confirmed a return date of Monday 28 September this year, have put together an extensive FAQ section for prospective students on their website, including a range of key information about term dates, teaching methods, and what support is available for students with a disability, or those without access to technology, as the way of university life changes.
There is also an archive of the university’s email communications around Covid-19, for anyone who may have missed any of them.
