The Covid-19 pandemic has been one of the biggest obstacles to university study over the past year or so. Students all over the world have been prevented from starting or returning to university in person, instead having to put their studies on hold or begin their courses remotely via distance learning.
Now that the world is beginning to open its doors again and students are being welcomed back onto campus, what should you expect from your university experience in the months to come?
Covid protection measures are likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future in order to keep students and staff safe. Depending on where you study in the world, which institution you attend, and what kind of course you are studying, your university experience could differ and require varying levels of protection. As a minimum, most students should expect:
Wearing masks in enclosed spaces will likely remain a key restriction for at least the next few months. If you’re planning to be inside, remember to take a mask with you just in case!
You may be asked to keep your distance from others in class and in social spaces. In some instances, class sizes may be smaller to account for the space available.
Online elementsSome parts of your course, such as workshops or large lectures, may take place online instead of in person. Be prepared to turn up on time to both your physical and online classes!
For more information about what restrictions to expect when you arrive at university this year, contact your university institution directly.
