Covid 19: The School of Information and Communication Studies plans for Trimester 1, 2021

Head of School
Dear Students,
 
I am very pleased to welcome you and wish you a happy, productive, creative and healthy new academic year on behalf of myself and all my colleagues at the School of Information and Communication Studies. After 18 months of online teaching, we look forward to welcoming you to the campus. However, as we still experience the effects of the pandemic, precautions and safety measures are still in place. We continue to follow national guidelines and we may need to revise our teaching plans accordingly. We hope that you can work with us in providing a safe environment for all by following instructions on hygiene, face coverings, and social distancing. 
 
Detailed information on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and modules is found below. For some of our postgraduate programmes, teaching will be blended, hyflex or online in the first three weeks. As always, module coordinators, programme directors, the School manager and myself are all available to answer questions and offer any help needed.
 
My colleagues and I are looking forward to meeting you in person.
Best wishes,
Professor Eugenia Siapera, Head of School.
