We’d like to hear from students across the UK about how Covid-19 and the national lockdown are affecting you this term. Share your experiences
With the UK heading into a national lockdown that could last for months, students across the country have been thrown into disarray. Those who travelled home for Christmas may be unable to return to campus until mid-February at the earliest and many of those who stayed at university have reported feeling stressed and isolated.
In accordance with The Coronavirus Act 2020, the devolved administrations of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have the authority to close universities in their respective nations. With in-person teaching cancelled for many, students are expected to continue their courses remotely either from their home or halls of residence.
