University Responses to Covid-19

Latest university responses added – 14th January 2021

What will university teaching look like this term?

There have been so many twists and turns as the country has moved in and out of lockdowns and Plan-Bs and now the four nations are operating different COVID-19 restrictions.

It can feel like a bit of a minefield to know what exactly is going on in each university.

For more than a year, StudentCrowd have been tracking how each university has been responding in this rapidly changing landscape. We continue to monitor week-by-week changes in teaching delivery in every university in the UK.

The table below outlines all the universities teaching delivery for 2021/22, as well as all the dates for their virtual open days.

We update this information on a weekly basis.

Click on the university name below to find out more about their current teaching plans and quarantine support.
