As part of your programme you are required to have Occupational Health clearance. This involves completion of an online questionnaire and follow up telephone interviews will be arranged for individual students if required. Further details of any vaccination programme required for your course will be sent to you with the occupational health correspondence.   

As part of your programme you are also required to have Disclosure and Barring Service clearance and we will use the Post Office document validation service for this, the exception to this are students who have not been resident in the UK as they will require a slightly different clearance to be completed. Further details will be sent to you by separate email. 

Semester 1 has been designed so that most of the activities will take place using digital technology. This is an opportunity to check what equipment you have to support your learning, such as computers, laptops or mobile tablets. We recognise that not all students have access to the Internet and/or digital devices at home and are taking steps to ensure that we can support you to access teaching. If you feel that you would like support with this, please email somstudentsupport@leeds.ac.uk using the subject line ‘Digital Support’.  Make sure you know how to access Microsoft Teams ahead of starting your course.

Will I be required to attend face-to-face sessions? 

Semester 1 has been designed so that almost all of the activities will take place using digital technology. On campus teaching activities with large numbers of students, such as lectures, have been replaced with online lectures. There will be some sessions that require you to attend in person. You will be informed of these sessions ahead of time by the Programme Team. Placements will take place face-to-face and the Programme Team will provide more information.

For any teaching that will be delivered on campus in semester 2 we have been working with our Health & Safety teams to make sure your safety is prioritised. Small group teaching sessions, including seminars and tutorials, will only take place on campus when it is practical and considered safe to do so in line with the Government guidance.  

Specialist teaching events for your programme such as clinical placements will take place face-to-face in in the clinical setting.  Clinical skills mandatory training sessions include Basic Life support and Moving and Handling will be risk assessed with appropriate safety measures in place, including the provision of appropriate PPE.

 By January we plan to be in a position to deliver more face-to-face teaching on campus, although our approach will remain flexible. We are continually reviewing our arrangements regularly, taking into account any changes in Government guidance, and we will continue to increase our face-to-face teaching as soon as it is considered safe to do so.

This means that the vast majority of your learning and teaching activities, and personal tutorials, will be conducted online through Minerva and MS Teams, with this including lots of opportunities for discussion, group work and online learning. We appreciate that some of you will be disappointed with this approach, but due to the current social distancing requirements it is not possible to organise large group face-to-face teaching. To ensure you are prepared for Clinical Placement activity we have organised a number of face-to-face workshops and clinical skills teaching sessions to take place in the University Clinical Education Centres and Worsley Building during semester 1. As the year progresses and the guidance changes we will adapt our delivery method to ensure we are keeping all our students and staff safe.

As the year progresses and the guidance changes we will adapt our delivery method to ensure we are keeping all our students and staff safe.  

Your programme teams have been working hard on planning the details of your course for next academic year to make sure that you will get the best experience possible whilst considering carefully Government guidance on social distancing. 

Semester 1 has been designed so that most of the academic activities will take place using digital technology. On campus teaching activities with large numbers of students, such as lectures, have been replaced with online lectures. Specialist teaching events for your programme/year group, such as clinical placement, will take place face-to-face in or in the clinical setting. 

Our online teaching is being designed to be interactive and engaging.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to interact with other students on your course through varied group activities. You will have access to a wide range of resources to support your learning including e-books, online journals and locally designed learning resources. You will continue to be supported by your personal tutors and our student education team throughout your degree. 

By January we plan to be in a position to deliver more face-to-face teaching on campus, although our approach will remain flexible; we will keep you updated as we progress through semester one. We are continually reviewing our arrangements regularly, taking into account any changes in government guidance, and we will continue to increase our face to face teaching as soon as it is considered safe to do so. 

Will I be required to attend face-to-face sessions? 

For the next academic session, Clinical Placements are expected to continue. To ensure you are prepared for Clinical Placement activity we have organised a number of face-to-face workshops and clinical skills teaching sessions to take place in the University Clinical Education Centres and Worsley Building during semester 1. This will ensure that you are fully prepared for entering the clinical environment in semester 2. More information on the delivery, timings and groups for these session will be detailed at the start of term in September. The expectation is that all students will be available to attend these sessions in person.
