What about studying at BCOM during COVID-19 pandemic?

Since March 2020 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.

Since September 2020 we have had in place blended learning and teaching for BCOM students with some lectures remaining online, to limit the need for our students 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 have been on site in “bubbles” of smaller groups and students are wearing PPE as recommended by the Government when they are not able to socially distance. The library is open and “bubbles” of students are able to visit the library on allocated days with social distancing in place. There is support staff available for all students.

The BCOM patient clinic, for year 2 upwards, is currently open and running as per the Government guidelines. For more details on how the clinic is operating and to see measures that are being put in place to ensure infection control please click here.
