University Responses to Covid-19

Latest university responses added – 15th October 2021

What will university teaching look like this September?

Now that results are out, students are making plans for the upcoming year once more and many will be asking questions like “what will university look like in September?” “what covid measures are in place at universities?”

There have been so many twists and turns as the country has moved in and out of lockdowns, as well as changes in how students and higher education are prioritised.

For more than a year, StudentCrowd have been tracking how each university has been responding in this rapidly changing landscape. We have monitored 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 have also recently added quarantine provisions for students travelling to uni from outside the UK.

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.

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