Updates to 2020/21 Tripos teaching in light of Covid-19 from the University's Education Committee 

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, it has been necessary to make some changes to the Chemical Engineering Tripos for the academic year 2020/21 in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation. The changes are:

  • All lectures will be delivered online.
  • The intention is that all smaller group and more participatory classes (supervisions, lab classes, exercises, design project, research project) will continue as normal as far as possible, but with social distancing and/or appropriate PPE.
  • The number of Part I exam papers taken by each candidate will reduce from four to three, with the syllabus coverage unchanged.
  • The number of Part IIA exam papers will reduce from four to three, with the syllabus coverage unchanged.
  • The number of Part IIA exercises will reduce from six to four.
  • Should further Covid-19 related restrictions come into force during the academic year, it may be necessary to make further adjustments to the course provision.
