QA Higher Education has two primary objectives during this rapidly evolving period regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19). The first is to ensure the welfare of its learners and staff, and the second is to ensure continuity and access to learning.

As such, below is more information about how we are responding to Covid-19 and current social distancing requirements.


Enrolment for these programmes will be online, removing any requirement for you to come in to the campus whilst our buildings are closed and social distancing rules are in place. We are intending to start your teaching and learning online as part of our response to the current Covid-19 outbreak.

As circumstances allow, we will review this decision with a view to bringing the programme back to face-to-face classroom tuition at the earliest appropriate time for your studies, taking into account government and medical guidance at the time. We are currently working on our plans to reopen our buildings safely, and in line with any social distancing rules.

As your start date approaches you will receive more details via email on what to expect with online teaching delivery, your timetable, and how to access the online learning. Please continue to check your emails for further information from us.

In line with the sector as a whole and its response to Covid-19, we are working on our plans to reopen our buildings safely, and in line with any social distancing rules.

We want to ensure that throughout your studies with us, you have access to all the support you need to succeed in your course. As part of our planning, we are intending for our London, Birmingham and Manchester Centres to be open in September, continuing to observe social distancing measures as required.

We plan to offer the opportunity to engage in some small group face-to-face teaching, consistent with any social distancing measures that may be in place, in addition to online live classes.

We are putting plans in place ready for when your studies start to ensure that we provide a safe and welcoming environment for you to enjoy.

We are achieving this by:

  • Offering on-campus teaching opportunities where possible and it is safe and practical, taking in to consideration any social distancing rules
  • Your course will be delivered using live online classes, with the opportunity to supplement these with face-to-face teaching where possible
  • You will have access to a range of dynamic virtual teaching tools which our academics will use to deliver engaging and challenging online learning and teaching. This includes access to a mix of online learning resources and your Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) 24/7, via your mobile, tablet and laptop.
  • Access to all of our support services, either online or on-campus, including our ACE Team, Careers support, and pastoral support from our Welfare Team
  • A social programme of activities to enable you to meet your fellow students, online and in-person, subject to social distancing requirements.

As your start date approaches we will send you more information on any updates to teaching and any next steps required.
