UK Universities’ Latest Arrangement During The Pandemic
As the 2021-2022 academic year is about to begin and Covid-19 impact continues. To better prepare for the upcoming year, we have compiled the potential academic arrangements of several UK universities to help our members to better plan their study and life in the near future.
Cambridge University is planning to deliver its small-group teaching, and as many lectures as possible, in-person. International students who have difficulties travelling to the UK request temporary permission to study remotely through the college before September.
Oxford University will offer most teaching in-person in the coming academic year.
Imperial College London required all the students to go back to campus as classes will be conducted in-person, unless it is prohibited from doing so by UK government restrictions.
The London School Of Economics and Political Science will deliver all compulsory teaching and learning activities in person, including seminars, tutorials, workshops, classes. Lectures, which are non-compulsory, will normally be delivered online.
University College London will blend offline and online teaching and learning. Most small group teaching - including seminars, workshops, laboratory and studio practicals - will be in person and most of lecture-based large group teaching will be online. Some overseas students who cannot go back to campus may be able to study remotely for the whole of Term 1 if the programme allows.
At King’s College London, require in-person attendance for the whole 2021-2022 academic year for the all undergraduate courses at the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care.
University of Edinburgh will provide a mix of digital and in-person teaching. Large group teaching, such as lectures, will be delivered digitally, while smaller group teaching, such as seminars, tutorials and lab work, is most likely to be delivered in-person and on campus.
Most courses at University of Bristol can be taken online. Units of some courses have to be completed in-person either in term time or over the summer.
We encourage students and parents to regularly check UK entry requirements as well as the university website for the updated arrangement for the coming academic-year! Stay safe!
