We have recently made the difficult but necessary decision to suspend face to face teaching, close non-essential activities on the University, postpone or cancel a number of events and to ask many of our staff to work remotely.
We have made these decisions in order to best protect the safety, the health, and the well-being of our students, our educators and our staff.
Teaching and learning
For undergraduate students and those taking taught postgraduate programmes, face-to-face teaching was suspended on Tuesday 17th March 2020 and will continue on-line until further notice.
For those of students undertaking a professional or short course, face-to-face teaching was replaced with online delivery from Thursday 19th March 2020 and will continue on-line until further notice. There are however a small number of exceptions.
All students should have already received instructions via email on how to access on-line materials and resources.
In order to reduce the risk of contagion on campus, access to our Europa Point Campus is now restricted. We have asked students and others to avoid coming into the University building if at all possible. For students that need to access the building or require a physical resource like a book, they are being directed to our Student Experience team on firstname.lastname@example.org with their request.
Of course, the current situation is evolving rapidly. Thus, we are working closely with HM Government of Gibraltar and taking advice on a regular basis, so please keep checking on our webpage or if a current student our SEO module on Canvas for the latest information and updates.
I am very proud of the way our students, educators and staff have responded to this difficult situation so far and how they are continuing to support and assist one another during these challenging times.
Please stay safe and stay well.

Vice-Chancellor, University of Gibraltar
