The university may revise the decision depending on official guidelines issued by the UK government.
Cambridge University has become one of the first universities in the world to announce that all their lectures that will be held over the next academic year will be held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
After the UK government announced a stern lockdown to restrict the spread of the Coronavirus in March, all the universities including Cambridge University had to shut its campuses down. The university, through an official statement released on Wednesday, said that all its lectures would strictly be delivered through the new media until summer 2021.
In a statement, the university mentioned, “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.”
The university may revise the decision depending on official guidelines issued by the UK government. Stephen Toope, who is the university's Vice-Chancellor stated in a statement last week, “We must all be realistic about the world-wide challenges posed by the pandemic.”
Cambridge University’s announcement makes it the first from the United Kingdom to have all online classes for the whole of the next academic year. Earlier, the California State University was one of the first in the US to conduct fall term classes online, amid the second wave of the global pandemic.
