We are posting some advice from the Office of the Independent Adjudicator. Please be aware that this is general national advice, and all LTU students should follow university guidelines when they come out. The university is working hard to resolve the difficult issues that students are facing at this time, and we will keep you updated as more news becomes available to us.
1. How will coronavirus affect my studies/assessments?
It is difficult for many teachers and lecturers to provide the support students needs as face-to-face teaching is cancelled and studies must continue virtually.
We are unsure of how long social distancing measures will last so all information and updates will be posted on the myLTU app and sent to your emails, you must be checking for these notifications constantly.
2. I can't study because of coronavirus. How do I deal with this?
Students will not be penalised for late submissions up to 5 days after their assessment deadlines
Students also receive 2 free deadline extensions each academic year and can use this by accessing their eVision.
Resources available for students studying remotely:
3. Do I still have to go to placement?
Placements have been suspended this year and the University is deciding on alternative ways to replace this.
4. Will studying abroad be affected?
Studying for 2020/21 is not currently affected, students should continue with the process that has been advised.
Applications are also still open for Jan 2021 until 30th September 2020.
