Even with later course start dates this year, we appreciate a few of you might be further delayed, and we want to reassure you this will not be a problem. You can arrive on campus within four weeks of the start of your course, which gives International Students until the following dates:
- Undergraduate – 5 November 2020
- Postgraduate – 15 November 2020
- Foundation – 8 October 2020
Further to this, if you’re still unable to make the necessary arrangements to start your course on time, we are able to offer you the option to begin your course online, before you travel to AUB, until January 2021.
Students learning remotely will be supported effectively through the use of our successful blended learning approaches and virtual campus. However, we cannot guarantee that the timing of sessions will be ideal for all. We will wherever possible arrange seminars and tutorials at convenient times, and we will record sessions for asynchronous viewing. There may be some aspects of some courses which genuinely cannot be delivered remotely because they require equipment which is unlikely to be available to a student who is not able to come to campus. Where a technical skill is part of the required learning outcomes of the course, the course team will be considering how this can be demonstrated.
If you are a Foundation Diploma student, you have the option of transferring your application to the January 2021 start date of the International Foundation Diploma. You will be able to still start your Undergraduate course at the same time in September 2021, but will have a more intensive and
slightly shorter Foundation course. If you are a Postgraduate student, you have the option of transferring your application to the February 2021 start date.
If you think you may be arriving later than our course start date, please contact our Admissions
Office to let them know and they will be able to advise and assist you.
