Government ‘must not take student resilience for granted’, university body says in call for full return

The government has been warned not to take the “resilience” of students for granted in a call for a full return to university next month, when England’s lockdown is set to ease.

Only those on certain courses have been allowed back onto campus for face-to-face teaching since the start of the year.

For the others who are still at home, after being told to stay put when England’s lockdown hit during the Christmas holidays, they are waiting to hear when they can go back.

Universities UK (UUK) has urged the government to go ahead with a full return on 12 April under the next stage of lockdown easing, which will see non-essential retail, hairdressers and gyms allowed to reopen.

UUK, which represents 140 universities, said “concerns are growing” the next stage of student returns will be delayed until mid-May at the earliest.
