An announcement made on Friday (March 13) told students that all face-to-face teaching has been suspended.

All physical exams and class tests have will be replaced with alternative assessment.

The university campus remains open, as does the library, catering outlets, the Stirling Court Hotel and the Sports Centre but opening times may vary to make time for extra cleaning.

The Students’ Union will be meeting on Monday to discuss the current situation and how this will impact clubs and societies.

The announcement read:

“The health and wellbeing of our University community is of paramount importance and the action outlined below follows close consultation with, and guidance from, the UK and Scottish Governments and other relevant agencies, including Health Protection Scotland.

“The temporary changes, as set out above, are intended to minimise the risk of COVID-19 and help to protect your health, and that of your fellow students, staff and visitors to the University. Our actions are consistent with expert guidance.

“Thank you, once again, for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented and challenging times.”

Current NHS advice is if you have symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19), a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back and a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly, then you should stay at home for seven days.

If you’re symptoms get worse over that time, do not get better or you feel like you cannot cope with your symptoms at home.  Please use the NHS 111 Coronavirus Service.
