So that we can best protect the health and wellbeing of all members of the Writtle University College community during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently operating as follows: 

  • The phased return of some of students from Monday 16th June to complete essential practical work , under clear guidelines and social distancing measures (See Information for Students section)

  • An outline of how we will deliver our courses from September has been communicated to current students and applicants.  We will focus on blended delivery of our courses, with theory taught online or in small group sizes with practicals on campus.  We are reviewing this course by course and will update with further information by the end of July. 

  • Our start dates for the new academic year remain unchanged: ​​

    • Further Education:  Monday 7th September for new starters, Monday 14th September for continuing students 

    • Higher Education:  Induction Week: 14th September, with teaching commencing Monday 21st September

  • WUC staff continue to work from home except those required to deliver essential support to those students unable to leave campus or to maintain business-critical functions, including the care of our animal population.

  • We continue to provide support for students currently in WUC accommodation who are unable to return home and remain on campus.

  • We are looking at how we can safely open up our student facilities from September. Our Halls accommodation will open in September to welcome our new Higher Education students
