The COVID Diaries – 53 20th May
Cambridge University has announced that lectures next academic year will be on-line, with none being face to face, although smaller teaching groups might be conducted in person if they meet social distancing requirements.
All university campuses have been closed this term due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
A statement from Cambridge University read: “The university is constantly adapting to changing advice as it emerges during this pandemic.
“Given that it is likely that social distancing will continue to be required, the university has decided there will be no face-to-face lectures during the next academic year.
“Lectures will continue to be made available online and it may be possible to host smaller teaching groups in person, as long as this conforms to social distancing requirements.
“This decision has been taken now to facilitate planning, but as ever, will be reviewed should there be changes to official advice on coronavirus.”
