In-person Short Courses & Summer Schools: COVID-19 Guidance

As restrictions are lifted across the UK, it is important that we all use personal judgement to help manage our risk to ensure a safe working and training environment for staff and participants. Please refer to the latest advice from the UK government on the precautions you should take to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. 

There is a risk of the transmission of COVID–19 in any environment where people gather. This risk increases in enclosed spaces and with increased numbers of people. The safety measures that have been introduced and are changing with UK government guidance are intended to minimise the risk of contracting COVID-19 but this risk cannot be completely eradicated. By attending a short course, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Participants and residents attending a short course acknowledge that they do so at their own risk.

Should you test positive to COVID-19 or feel unwell at any time during your course please do not come in and contact us at shortcourses@gsmd.ac.uk.

COVID-19 protocols and safety measures - updated July 2023  

  • Social distancing is not required, though please be aware of others’ personal space.
  • If you test positive you should still refrain from coming into the School and please contact the Short Courses Team at shortcourses@gsmd.ac.uk to inform us. 
  • Practise good hand hygiene, please use the hand sanitiser and wipes located in the building and remember to wash hands regularly.
