There will be no “face-to-face lectures” at the University of Cambridge in the 2020/21 academic year, the institution has said.
Lectures will continue virtually, while it may be possible for smaller teaching groups to take place in person if it conforms to social distancing requirements. A spokesman for the university said:
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.
