Initial information for students about the next academic year

The University has written to all current students and offer holders to provide a broad overview of the University’s approach to teaching, learning and assessment, health and safety and student life. This includes confirmation that normal residency requirements will be in place once again for full-time students in Michaelmas 2021 term – with dispensations in place for students who might not find it possible to arrive for the start of the year. The expected behaviours of students to protect the health of the whole Oxford community will be outlined as University health and safety instructions, rather than in a specific agreement that students need to sign. A new page has been created on the student section of the University coronavirus site, and will be updated with more information as it becomes clear.
