* As stated in the Coronavirus FAQ’s, all academic and taught content for the residentials in the autumn term will be delivered online, with the exception of the Leadership Formation Course due to take place at the November Residential week. Online delivery of the residential week content will take place during the scheduled week, but with the timetable reworked so that teaching is Monday – Friday (except for students undertaking the leadership formation course as noted above). For the online delivery of the residential weekend content for the autumn term, ordinands will join the online December Teaching Week for independent students (Monday – Friday). By moving academic content away from residential weekends in the autumn term, the focus of weekends where we are able to meet together in person, dependent on government guidelines and the availability of our residential venues, will be on relationship building, corporate worship, formation, and ministry. This allows suitable flexibility should restrictions be reintroduced.
