COVID-19 update to MSc Teaching
Our Masters Programmes are planned to run from September 2020 onwards and are open for applications. We are planning to run our September 2020 MSc programmes that are Liverpool based in a different, yet engaging format. The delivery of programmes will facilitate an interactive and structured mix of learning activities which will enable you to connect closely to your cohort and the academics delivering the programmes. As learners, you will engage with a variety of activities, many collaborative, which encourage dialogue and engagement in real-world problem-solving.
Teaching will comprise a blended learning model that offers a mix of in-class learning and the added flexibility that online teaching offers. This will include face to face delivery by academic staff in Liverpool as well as via Brightspace, our virtual learning environment. You will encounter a range of virtual classroom activities, digital teaching tools, learning resources and other activities with our academic staff and the wider LSTM student community. Students on laboratory-based programmes will continue to access lab sessions in Liverpool as required by the programme. In all of our face to face teaching, social distancing guidelines will be upheld.
The academic year will commence on 14 September 2020 with a 2 week online induction.
The MSc Tropical Disease Biology was due to start on 8 September 2020 followed by a three day residential trip. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, this trip will not be taking place this year and TDB students will start on 14 September 2020 along with all other MSc students.
Students will commence the first week of teaching on Monday, 28 September 2020. In order to accommodate potential delays to arrival in the UK, a provision will be made to allow arrival to LSTM by 9am Monday, 12 October 2020 at the very latest.
This model is currently for Semester 1 modules. We are aiming to resume face to face delivery for Semester 2 modules with the proviso that we are able to do so in light of Covid-19 restrictions.
