Coronavirus

Here at Staffordshire University, we are doing everything we can to support our students and staff through the COVID-19 pandemic. This page contains all of the latest updates from the University.

If you are a Staffordshire University student studying with one of our Collaborative Academic Partners, please contact the institution in question for information about local arrangements.

If you require accessibility tools, you can use 'ReciteMe' assistive technology service to read this page out loud, translate into your local language or adjust reading options.

The full campus experience at Staffordshire University

All our on-campus courses will provide an exciting mix of learning and teaching approaches. The exact mix will vary for each course area, but all (full time undergraduate) students will benefit from an active on-campus experience, with at least three days each week of scheduled on-campus learning and student experience activity. You'll find more details in the Student Charter.   

COVID-secure measures

Throughout the pandemic we have been following Government and Department for Education guidance as it emerges, looking at how it applies to all aspects of our University activities in order to keep our students and staff safe.

To ensure we prioritise the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and University community, we have several COVID-secure measures in place.

We also encourage all staff, students and visitors to be understanding of other’s personal circumstances and considerate of individuals that may continue to follow their own extra precautions.

Face coverings

From Tuesday 30 November 2021, the Government has legally made the wearing of face coverings in shops and on public transport mandatory once again. Further guidance from the Department for Education has now been provided.

From Tuesday 30 November 2021, all staff, students and visitors must wear face coverings in the communal areas of all University and Students' Union buildings, unless you are exempt. 

Social distancing

In line with Government guidance, stating that social distancing is no longer mandatory in Step 4 of the roadmap, we have removed the one-metre plus (1m+) social distancing policy in our University buildings, including offices, lecture theatres and classrooms.

COVID-19 testing

Testing remains an important step we can all take in terms of looking after our own health and that of other students and staff. 

The Department for Education requires all students to test, at least twice a week, using the lateral flow tests which are widely available.

Please remember that even if you have had your COVID-19 vaccinations, you can still catch the virus and you can still pass it on to others. It is important that you continue to get tested, and if you test positive, you must still self-isolate for ten days.  

Test reporting is essential. How you report your result depends on how you get tested.
