If you remember nothing else:

Email is your friend – check your student (and CAO) email religiously!

Note: All official communications about our plans will be provided to staff and students via their official university email account and on the Coronavirus web page. Before you register and get an university account we will use the email used on your CAO application.

But first, for the times we live in.
