COVID-19 - your responsibilities

Everyone in our University community has a responsibility to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).  We must all follow guidelines to meet that obligation.

To help you to understand your responsibilities, the University has published the Good Citizen Guide.  It explains more about your responsibilities as a member of the University community living in Scotland, where government guidelines are different to those in other parts of the UK, and other countries.

Those who fail to follow the guidelines could find themselves in breach of University regulations, including the University’s Code of Student Conduct.

Protect Scotland app

The University encourages students and staff to download the free Protect Scotland app from NHS Scotland's Test and Protect service.  The app alerts users if they have been in close contact with another app user who tests positive for Covid-19.  Also, if a user tests positive, it can help determine contacts that they may have otherwise missed, while keeping everyone's personal information private and anonymous.

Keeping your location and method of study up-to-date

The University has asked you to tell us your location and how you are engaging with your studies (e.g. digitally or partially in-person) as part of annual registration.  It is important that we have a record of your location and method of study, and that you update us if your situation changes, so we can provide you with the best possible support throughout the year.

You can update your location and method of study through the My Student Record channel on MyEd.  You can check your current recorded status on MyEd under the Programme tab.  More information on how to do this can be found on the Student Systems website.
