COVID-19 Update

The government has announced that most COVID-related restrictions will be lifted from Monday 19 July, 2021. The University's current policy is for students to return to Cambridge in Michaelmas term, as set out in the Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor's 21 June message to staff and students

A 'blended learning’ model is currently being prepared at the Department, with the intent to provide as much in-person teaching as circumstances allow whilst prioritising the safety of students and staff. Further details on these arrangements will be circulated in early September.
