Students will be heading back to Cambridge after the Government announced the full re-opening of universities for face-to-face teaching from 17 May.
Up until now, there has been limited in-person teaching with much learning moving online and far fewer students in the city.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I’ll be pleased to welcome more students back to Cambridge. Our city is a more diverse and vibrant place when they are here! This is good news, although it is very late in the term for some universities, and a week’s notice will be a challenge for already hard-pressed staff. In the few weeks remaining, universities need the resource to ensure that as much can be done as possible to make up for all that students have missed over the last year. The key in similar situations in future will be to make sure there is adequate notice given, with better communication from Government.”
