Coronavirus | COVID-19


Throughout the pandemic, the health and safety of our students, colleagues, everyone who accesses our campuses, and our local communities has been our main priority. 

We are keen that we are reflecting the changes that are being made in society towards managing and living with Covid. It is thanks to everyone’s efforts we have been able to limit the spread of infection within the university and maintain working and teaching, and we want that to continue.

We are continuing to follow any Welsh Government Covid guidance, so that we are taking appropriate and proportionate steps to keep people safe.

The University’s Covid risk assessments have been updated to reflect the up-to-date public health position and relevant guidelines.


The wellbeing and health and safety of our students and staff is paramount to us. Should there be any changes to Welsh Government regulations during the 2022/23 academic year, then the methods and activities adopted for delivering our course may need to differ from those previously published. Please be reassured that we have flexible teaching and learning methods, appropriate technology and the experience to enable us to easily adapt our delivery, to support you to succeed in your studies, should this be necessary. 

Whether you’re on-campus full time, part-time with online study, or full-time online, USW is committed to providing you with a fantastic student experience and a wealth of support.
