Studying in 2020-21

For many years, the majority of our teaching has taken place in small group settings such as seminars, laboratory classes, tutorials, clinical simulation and other practical sessions. While the national situation has continually evolved, at Worcester we have continued to teach these sessions in person, where permitted. While strictly following the Government safety guidelines in place at the time.

Other sessions have been delivered through a blend of in-person and online learning. You can read more about this, and other aspects of studying at Worcester in 2020-21.
