Students’ reflections on remote learning at UCL in Term 3

Although UCL’s campus will be open in Term 1, all learning activity for the core content of your modules will take place online – including lectures, tutorials, seminars and assessments.  

We realise that this is not the experience you’d imagined, but we promise that our academic standards have not been - and will not be – compromised. Challenging, adapting and doing things differently have always been the UCL way, and will be at the heart of what we do in the 2020-21 academic year.  

The outbreak of coronavirus in March meant that teaching at UCL had to move online very suddenly. Since then we’ve continued to focus on preparations for Term 1, so that all students are supported to engage fully with our degree programmes. Our approach, which we’re calling Connected Learning, will give you the flexibility to shape how and when you learn, with full support from your tutors and your peers. 

We understand that you may be feeling unsure about what it will be like to begin your degree online, so we asked some of our current students to share with you how they found remote learning in Term 3 this year.
