While the university remains open, we are monitoring and planning as the situation evolves. As part of this planning we will shortly be implementing new actions to reduce the potential exposure of our community.
From Monday 16 March, we will transition into more flexible working. Teaching sessions for taught students will be delivered online from 23 March 2020 until the beginning of May 2020. We will be reviewing the situation regularly. There may be some exceptions to this policy in Clinical Faculties, for example where term dates differ. Students will be contacted by their faculties and departments about specific plans for clinical and lab teaching.
99这里视频只精品2019Exams and assessments will take place remotely after Easter, except where professional bodies are involved. This includes alternative assessment arrangements for the main examination period scheduled between 27 April and 29 May 2020. For most programmes and modules, we will not hold conventional unseen exams requiring students to be physically present over this period, but instead will provide assessment in alternative formats. These arrangements are being actively considered at a faculty and departmental level, and students will be kept fully updated.
All university events, gatherings or meetings with over 50 people are to be offered virtually, postponed or cancelled until, at the very earliest, the start of May 2020.
Faculties and departments will provide more detailed guidance and support to our students. We encourage our students to regularly check their KCL inbox and the coronavirus pages on our website for the latest updates and advice.
We are working in extraordinary and uncertain times and recognise that the significant steps we are taking will cause disruption. We feel that this is the best course of action to protect our community of staff, students and visitors during this challenging and unsettling time. We are continuing to follow the Government and PHE advice and are ready to make further changes as the situation develops.
