What about studying at BCOM during Covid 19 pandemic?

Since the end of March we have been carrying out online tutorials/lectures and students have carried out video consultations with patients as part of their time in clinic. We are so proud of how well our students and staff have adapted to this new learning environment.

From September 2020 we are planning blended learning and teaching for BCOM students with some lectures remaining online to limit the need for you to travel to BCOM and also to reduce face to face contact. We will prioritise the safety and well being of our students, patients and staff so we will adapt according to the Government guidelines and advice. Our practical classes will be on site in “bubbles” of smaller groups and students will wear PPE as recommended by the Government when they are not able to socially distance. The library will be open and “bubbles” of students will be able to visit the library on allocated days with social distancing in place. There will be support staff available for all students.

The BCOM clinic, for year 3 upwards, will be open and running. For more details on how the clinic will operate and to see measures that are being put in place to ensure infection control please click here.
