The University of Cambridge has announced that all of its lectures, including those run by its law faculty, will be conducted online until next summer in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
The prestigious institution is the first to set out measures for the full 2020-21 academic year. This week we reported that Manchester University’s law department will deliver all of its lectures virtually from the start of semester one in September.
“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,” a Cambridge University spokesperson said, adding that lectures will continue to be made available online, and that the decision has been taken now to facilitate planning but will be reviewed as official advice changes.
The spokesperson said, however, that “it may be possible to host smaller teaching groups in person” if they meet social distancing requirements.
