During 2019–20, all students were impacted by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time a range of measures were put in place to assist all students to complete their awards under difficult circumstances, this included moving to online teaching, learning and assessment and working with all our Awarding Bodies to make sure that we could gather the remaining evidence for assessments in an effective way. For some students, this also included deferring some practical assessments until later in the year.

Further to this, SRUC implemented a “Help not Hinder” approach for the consideration of student outcomes as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on the majority of degree students. This approach was based on an individual student’s circumstances and their pre-Covid results. In 2020–21, we are in a different situation as the academic year has been impacted by COVID from the start and consequently we cannot apply the same approach. SRUC has however implemented a range of actions prior to and during this academic year to support students during these difficult times. This update includes the existing measures and some additional measures proposed for 2020–21.
