MillionPlus, the Association for Modern Universities, has today (22 February) commented on the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
Dr Greg Walker, Chief Executive of MillionPlus, said:
“Universities are focused on safely returning students to campus as soon as government health advice confirms that this is allowed. Our priority is to ensure continued high quality education for those the government asks to continue to learn remotely for now, alongside a Covid-secure experience for those students who have already returned and the practical students who will be permitted to return from 8 March.
“Modern universities are working flat out to ensure that all students can successfully complete their academic year’s study this summer, particularly enabling those finishing this summer to qualify with their degree or diploma. Universities have invested millions of pounds in their teaching spaces and online capabilities to ensure that this can happen.
“We pay ongoing tribute to our students and staff for all that they have done and continue to do during difficult circumstances.”
