Currently, we are working on the basis that the course will be happening in Oxford as planned. The University intends to be open to new and returning students in Michaelmas. However, we are taking very seriously the possibility that there will be some level of disruption to teaching next year, including the chance that some or all of our classes will have to be taken online.
We are fully committed to delivering an outstanding academic experience to our students, to maintaining our focus on personalised teaching, and to the safety and wellbeing of our entire community. To prepare for all eventualities, we are currently trialling a range of mechanisms to enable both the core teaching, and the communications, collaboration and community-building that make up an important part of the MPP experience, to be delivered online.
Arrangements for teaching and/or research will, of course, be subject to conditions prevailing at the time and always with the health and safety of students and staff as the first priority. For more information, please see the University’s advice for applicants and offer holders.
