The University of Cambridge is moving all classes online for the upcoming academic year, until the summer of 2021, the university announced on Tuesday, according to BBC.
Cambridge University has become the first UK institution to announce it is moving all lectures online until summer 2021.
The statement from the university reads:
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.
