SPS Life 2020
We've been preparing all summer and now we're ready to welcome new and returning students for the start of the new year.
Things will be a bit different this year and there's A LOT of information to take in about how we're delivering your studies while making sure all students and staff are kept safe and healthy.
To make sure you have all the information about health and safety on campus, and how we'll support you to get your studies off to a great start, we'll include everything on these pages. Please keep checking here as guidance may change, so we'll make sure they're up to date with the latest info.
We've made some changes to our home - the Chrystal Macmillan Building. Find out what to expect next time you visit and how we're keeping our School community safe and healthy:
360 tour of CMB
We've created a 360 tour of the Chrystal Macmillan Building, so you can explore the main areas before you visit.
Check our SPS Covid-19 handbook here for guidance about how we've adapted our School's buildings and services in response to Covid-19.
It's based on the latest advice and protocols and includes information on:
Preparing to Return to Campus / Your Health & Safety on Campus / Returning to CMB / Returning to 18 and 22a Buccleuch Place / School-wide Facilities & Services / Teaching on Campus / Continuing to Work from Home and a wide range of useful links and contacts.
We've sent emails to new and returning students over the summer and all of them contain a wide range of useful information. Just in case you've missed any or some have accidentally slipped in to junk mail - we've added a list of links below.
