University Responses to Covid-19

Latest university responses added – 19th April 2021

2020 university teaching delivery has seen more changes than most courses have had in the last 10 years.

University Teaching Delivery 20-21

April 2020 saw the majority of university teaching go online for the remainder of the summer term. June was an important month for prospective students making their final selections for the Autumn term. The Office for Students (OfS) advocated hard for prospective students to be given as much information as possible to help guide their choices for autumn 2020.

StudentCrowd is all about helping students to make decisions. So, from June, we have been tracking all of the teaching delivery information available to support students in planning for student life.

Below, you will find a list of all the universities teaching delivery for 2020/21, 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.

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