Firstly, many congratulations on securing a place at UONL, and a very warm welcome.
As you may have seen in the news, the Universities Minister has set out the latest guidance on the return of students to universities (Higher education providers: coronavirus (COVID-19) - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) stating that all students will be able to return to in-person teaching.

We have considerable experience in online delivery, and I am sure you will find the experience as rewarding and positive as all of the many thousands of students attending our online Welcome Events and classes over the last year.
During Welcome Week you can expect lots of daily exciting events such as meeting your tutors, academics, class mates and seeing the teaching facilities you will be learning in. There will be tours of the Campus happening daily to fit around your busy schedules, these are good to attend so you can see the local amenities within the East India Docks.
