Coronavirus (Covid-19): update

The Andrew Wiles Building has now re-opened for department members and students. For everyone’s health and safety, 2m social distancing must be maintained at all times, and face coverings must be worn in the AWB in line with the University face coverings policy.

Please see the departmental COVID-19 useful info webpage for further information.

Undergraduate lectures will remain online for the time being, but small-group lectures which are solely for MSc and DPhil students will be primarily face-to-face, as will the third and fourth year undergraduate inter-collegiate classes.
