A warm welcome to all our new and returning students - we are really looking forward to working with you, in both our face-to-face and virtual learning spaces. In this new and evolving situation the College of Arts and Humanities is prioritising wellbeing, quality and flexibility. Health and safety will be aligned with stimulating teaching and learning environments, designed to meet disciplinary demands and to provide access for all.

Each of our Schools will therefore be using a specific blend of on campus and virtual teaching modes to give you the best experience. To make the most of this you are encouraged to get involved in as many activities as you can and to take every opportunity to communicate with us.

Welcome to all postgraduate students joining our taught programmes this September. We very much look forward to having you with us and to encouraging you in your passion for your chosen discipline. Though this year presents particular challenges, we are fully committed to working with you to build a rich educational experience in a safe and supportive environment. Each graduate programme is carefully designed to meet the needs of students while maintaining our high standards of research-led teaching and expert mentoring.
