Statement to Applicants

Fielden Campus in Didsbury, Manchester

Information about learning from September 2020

From September 2020, we’ll be taking the right steps to ensure you’re getting a more focused, personalised learning experience whether you’re on or off-campus. This means that all our courses will take a blended approach to learning, making sure that you receive face-to-face sessions in a safe, socially distanced environment, along with a high quality online experience where this is appropriate.

If you’re asked to be on campus, it’s because you’ll need to be there for a practical or technical session, a formal assessment or because we want to give you the right support in 1:1 tutorials or small group seminars. You’ll be on campus for shorter, more intensive periods that will be concentrated so you’re getting the most out of it.

Where we can run our sessions remotely without it compromising your learning we will. As they have this year, our teaching team will be working increasingly flexibly to ensure we can support our students. We’ll also make sure we create the right online environment for you to feel part of the UCEN Manchester community and interact with your fellow students as much as possible.

The actual balance between face-to-face and online learning will depend on your particular course, and we will be guided by the latest government advice, as well as the relevant industry practices, to provide the right learning for you. Rest assured that your safety and wellbeing is an absolute priority for us, and we will always act in your best interests in trying to provide the right learning environment for you.

Students are at the heart of everything we do at UCEN Manchester. We believe that your success is intrinsically linked to the support you receive both academically and personally.

Our staff are experts in their field and hold a varied range of professional and industry experience. Their support and dedication ensure you will be guided, supported and encouraged to learn and achieve within your chosen subject, whatever the circumstances.
