What are the plans for Semester One?

From 1 September, the University will move to the ‘green’ stage in its Return to Campus Plan, welcoming students and staff back to campus with some safety mitigations in place to help protect each other and your learning experience. 

Please play your part and support each other to help keep everyone safe: 

  • Face coverings will be expected in all indoor settings across campus unless exempt, to look after our community and help minimise the potential for disruption to in-person teaching. Face covering exemption badges will be available from the new Student Info Point in the AKLC from the start of teaching for those who are exempt and would like to wear one to indicate this.
  • Stringent cleaning regimes will continue across campus, and all students, staff and visitors will be reminded to wash their hands and use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.
  • Students and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in twice-weekly testing. The Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Collect service will reopen on campus on Monday 6 September for both students and staff. Tests will be available to collect from the Fountains Court Common Room Monday to Friday, 10.00am – 2.00pm. Alternatively, tests can be ordered online via the government home testing programme. The University will continue to support students who need to self-isolate in halls.

In-person teaching will be supported and further enhanced by additional engagement activities and opportunities online and through digital teaching materials. As was the case before the pandemic, the majority of assessments will remain online, with the exception of exams, presentations and a number of media, journalism and sports practicals. 

Our approach as a University throughout the pandemic has been to put the health, safety and wellbeing of staff and students first. This approach has served us well over the last 17 months and our community didn’t experience the large outbreaks which affected a number of other institutions. With this in mind, all measures will remain under continual review and we will adjust and provide updates as necessary. 

Some of the delivery for programmes like apprenticeships will remain online so please look out for programme updates.

Can I return to the Leeds Trinity campus this academic year?

From 1 September, the University will move to the ‘green’ stage in its Return to Campus Plan, welcoming students and staff back to campus with some safety mitigations in place to help protect each other and prevent disruption to the learning experience. 

These include face coverings being expected in all indoor settings across campus, unless exempt; stringent cleaning regimes; use of ventilation; and the LFD Collect service reopening to support students and staff to participate in twice-weekly testing. All measures will remain under continual review and we will adjust and provide updates as necessary.  

In-person teaching will be supported and further enhanced by additional engagement activities and opportunities online and through digital teaching materials. As you would expect, we are also working to ensure that we are ready to continue to deliver an engaging student experience in all eventualities, in a safe and secure way. If you have any queries or concerns, please email info@leedstrinity.ac.uk.

Will I need to wear a face covering on campus?

From 1 September, face coverings will be expected in all indoor settings across campus, unless exempt, to continue to protect each other and prevent disruption to the learning experience. Please play your part and support each other to look after our community. 

Exemptions on campus include (but are not limited to): providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading, facial expressions and clear sound to communicate; being unable to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability; if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress; to avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to yourself or others; to eat or drink if reasonably necessary; and in order to take medication. 

All measures will remain under continual review and we will adjust and provide updates as necessary. 

Will I be offered tests?

Students and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in twice-weekly testing. The Lateral Flow Device (LFD) Collect service will reopen on campus on Monday 6 September for both students and staff. Tests will be available to collect from the Fountains Court Common Room Monday to Friday, 10.00am – 2.00pm. Alternatively, tests can be ordered online via the government home testing programme. The University will continue to support students who need to self-isolate in halls.
