Your Title Goes Here

advice for applicants

We are taking applications as normal.

If you are applying for a course, you may rest assured that we have a clear plan to deliver fully immersive programmes, while still respecting everyone’s safety and health with respect to Covid-19. It is our hope that courses starting in September 2021 and beyond will be relatively unaffected by national restrictions, but should the situation change, our flexible programmes and forward planning will ensure we can quickly respond in a way that will allow courses to proceed safely.

advice for visitors

Non-student visitors are not allowed in our buildings (other than those open to the public at any given time). If family are traveling to Dartington with students, we request that they drop off their students in the car park.

We encourage all visitors to the campus to download and use the NHS Track and Trace app, and to use the app to ‘check in’ when visiting by scanning the QR code at check in points.

This means that NHS Test and Trace can contact you if, for instance, there is an outbreak linked to our premises, and provide you with appropriate public health advice.

On the Dartington estate, you can check in at the following locations:

  • The White Hart
  • The Green Table
  • Refectory (student dining area)
  • Elmhirst Library
  • Courtyard Library
  • EDT Studio
  • …plus other venues where public-facing events are taking place
