BREAKING: Newcastle University moves ALL non-essential teaching online

Teaching at Newcastle University will be entirely online from Thursday

Newcastle University has announced that all teaching will be delivered online except where in-person sessions are essential. This will come into effect from Thursday 8th October and will last an initial period of three weeks until the end of the month.

Both universities in Newcastle have agreed to move to Tier 3 of the Department for Education’s guidance on the delivery of teaching. After the three week period of online teaching, the universities will reassess the situation based on current guidelines.

An email from Vice-Chancellor Chris Day states that campus will remain open and a full FAQ will be available by the end of the week.

This follows the news of an “inevitable” second lockdown in response to a large rise in cases in Newcastle.
