“The University of Cambridge says all its face-to-face lectures are moving online for the 2020-21 academic year because of uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
The world-famous institution is the first in Britain to announce such a move as colleges and universities around the globe are trying to determine how they will instruct students safely in the months ahead.
‘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,’ it said in a statement late Tuesday, according to the BBC. ‘Lectures will continue to be made available online and it may be possible to host smaller teaching groups in person, as long as this conforms to social distancing requirements.'”
