University Responses to Covid-19

Latest university responses added – 6th July

If you’re trying to figure out what’s going on at university in September, you’re not alone!

96% of universities have confirmed their intentions for their teaching delivery in the next academic year:

University Teaching Delivery 20-21

With no clear government guidance (UCU), it is a challenging time for those setting policies for universities. The Office for Students (OfS) have advocated for students to be given as much information as possible to help guide their choices. StudentCrowd is all about helping students to make decisions. In the next few weeks we want to bring as much clarity to the situation as we can.

We have collated all of the information available to support you as you decide where to study. Below, you will find a list of all the universities and their declared intentions for 2020/21, as well as all the dates for their virtual open days. Over the next few weeks, we’ll keep this information up to date.

Click on the university name below to find out more about their plans for September.

If you notice that we need to update some information, let us know at support@studentcrowd.com.
