An insight into how we envisage teaching for the next academic year
Following the changes made throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and feedback from our students on how they like to learn, we're changing the way we do things at Solent.
Our aim is to increase our focus on ensuring you gain the hands-on experience valued by employers – something we know is more important than ever in the competitive, post-Covid work environment.
From September 2021, all students will experience an improved approach to learning and teaching, helping you to make the most of our state-of-the-art facilities while enjoying university life on our vibrant city centre campus.
Each one of our courses has been reviewed to maximise interdisciplinary activities, real-world learning, and to ensure a focus on quality contact time with our academics, technical instructors and expert industry practitioners.
A combination of interactive learning on campus, with on-site keynote lectures, plus on-demand access to online teaching, has been designed to ensure every one of our students leave us as independent learners with the skills to succeed.
We’re so excited about what this new approach means for your learning, personal development and university life – but most importantly, in delivering an experience that will leave you ready for anything.
Please watch the video below for an update on Solent in September from Nona McDuff, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Students and Teaching.
Looking forward, your 2021 timetable will give you an overview of what these changes mean for your course, and your course leaders will explain exactly how the approach will be delivered at the start of the new academic year.
We will also be continuing to prioritise the health and safety of all our staff and students, and all teaching plans will be dependent on Government policy around Covid-19. We know from our experiences over the last year we can successfully move between on site, online and blended learning when necessary, and will continue to keep you full informed about any impact on you or your course.
