MetiNews.Com - The vast majority of Monklands students aren't expected back on campuses until the start of March
Breaking News ! COLLEGE and university students throughout Lanarkshire will be taught online throughout January and February, with the vast majority not expected back on campuses until the start of March, as part of a revised plan for their return in light of the spread of the new variant of coronavirus. Only very small numbers of students will be allowed back on campus this month, for example, those: who have remained over the winter break, whose attendance is critical and whose education cannot be delivered remotely or postponed, essential placements, or for reasons of student wellbeing. Where attendance is time-sensitive to the ability to graduate and cannot be delivered remotely or further postponed, very limited numbers of students may be able to return from mid-February. However, all arrangements are subject to a future review of Covid-19 conditions.
Richard Lochhead, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, said: “The return of students to campus, including returning to term-time accommodation, involves the mass movement of thousands of people across the country. “The mixing of people on that scale, including the potential movement of tens of thousands of students to university halls and private-rented flats, simply isn’t safe right now. It would fuel the virus, and that is something no one wants.”
