Update for September 2020 - Returning Students and New Students

At University Centre Askham Bryan (UCAB) we are currently preparing to welcome new and returning students to our campus for the start of the autumn term. We are aware you might be concerned about what next year could look like so I am writing to you to provide you with as much clarity as possible about our plans, which take into account government advice and ongoing feedback from consultations with our Student Union.
