The University of Cambridge announced that it will cancel face-to-face teaching in the next academic year and switch to online teaching until the summer of 2021. But Cambridge University said that if it meets the requirements of social distance, it may still allow smaller teaching groups to face to face.
According to the BBC report, if the government’s epidemic prevention and control policy changes and social distance regulations change, Cambridge University will review the decision.
The Cambridge University statement pointed out that during the outbreak of the new coronary pneumonia, the school continued to make changes in response to government recommendations. The social distance may continue, so the school decided to cancel face-to-face classes next school year. Cambridge has closed its epidemic prevention this semester. The University of Manchester also announced earlier that due to the epidemic, only online courses will be reserved for the next semester.
