UK’s Top Institution Cambridge University switches to 100% Virtual Lectures until summer 2021

Cambridge has become the first university to announce that all its lectures will be online for the full 2020-21 academic year. The institution added that it was “likely” social distancing would continue to be required until next year.


A SPOKESMAN for the university said lectures would continue “virtually” until summer 2021, while it still may be possible for some smaller teaching groups to take place in person if it “conforms to social-distancing requirements.”

A spokesman 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.

The higher education sector globally is currently weighing concerns over the safety of students and faculty should campuses reopen this autumn against substantial financial losses should doors remain shut. Already, enrolments are expected to decline, with a drop in international student numbers, in particular, a concern for UK higher education institutions.

In recent years, the number of students from China enrolled at UK universities had increased significantly, creating a considerable revenue stream as international students pay higher tuition fees than domestic students.
