Material Changes to Courses

We are putting in place plans to welcome you safely to campus.  In order to meet these high standards of safety we have made some changes to programmes.

At the University of Liverpool, we are proud of our world-leading research, cutting-edge teaching, and the inclusive culture of our campus.  To ensure we can deliver this work safely and securely we are developing an innovative hybrid-active learning model, which we anticipate will provide every student with a mix of face-to-face teaching in smaller group classes and laboratories (not large lectures) alongside virtual teaching sessions.

We are putting in place plans to welcome you safely to campus.  In order to meet these high standards of safety we have made some changes to programmes which include things like field trips. Where significant changes, beyond the mode of delivery, have been made for your subject, we have detailed these on the pages below.

The vast majority of changes are minimal, and we believe will not significantly affect your learning experience with us.

Some of the terms on these pages may be unfamiliar to you. We've explained some of the terms you may see in the faculty content here:

Asynchronous and synchronous: Asynchronous content or teaching is pre-recorded and available online for you to view at a convenient point. Synchronous teaching is live, allowing students to engage directly with the lecturer and each other.
