Teaching and timetabling 2021/22

Teaching and timetabling

We are currently operating blended learning (a mix of in-person and online) and all students can expect to be on campus for teaching. Measures such as enhanced ventilation and hand hygiene continue to be important in our efforts to minimise the risk of transmission on campus. These current enhanced safety measures have proved highly effective in limiting the spread of the virus on campus.

Teaching and Timetabling FAQs

What is blended learning?

Blended learning is a mix of face-to-face teaching which will take place on campus, live online teaching sessions and access to materials prepared in advance.  

All students have some face-to-face teaching on campus this academic year. 

Am I able to study my course online full-time?

Abertay is a campus-based institution and we believe in the value of face-to-face teaching, so you should come to Dundee and attend timetabled classes on campus as much as you can. We know that some students may have difficulty in attending in person due to self-isolation or other individual circumstances and support will be in place to allow you to study online whilst you are unable to attend the campus.

Please contact the Support Enquiry Zone to discuss this.

When will I have to come to campus for teaching?

Personal timetables outlining your specific face-to-face and online attendance requirements will be issued be our Timetables team. 

If you would like to discuss your individual circumstances in the meantime, please contact SEZ in the first instance.

Will I be able to study remotely if I have to self-isolate?

If you unable to attend the campus there will be support in place to allow you to study online. Please let the University know as soon as possible if you do have to self-isolate so we can arrange any support you may need.


How much on campus teaching will there be?

The exact number of teaching hours on campus varies between different programmes or modules. Please check your personal timetable for this information.
