Starting Uni in September and I’m desperately hoping everything gets better since I don’t think doing online courses in my first year would do any good

They will open but its likely there will be social distancing in place.
If it looks unappealing then just defer.
Not anything the unis can do anything about.

We should have a better idea if things will be closer to all online or all in person by July. It’s likely to be somewhere along that spectrum for at least the first term.

I’m an international student and I’m really re-considering going to kings college London. I currently hold a conditional offer and I firmed KCL already. however due to corona, I don’t see it being a logical idea for me to study overseas in London if classes are going to be taught online anyways and social distancing protocols will most likely stay put until early 2021. The whole reason I wanted to study abroad was to challenge myself and explore a new city, but all of the factors that make me want to go will be compromised due to the current global situation. I’m also asian, and the UK is already in itself infamous for being a relatively racist place, and I’m scared that because of it I’ll get racially targeted/excluded in London especially during COVID-19. I got into a rly great local university in my home city, so I’m finding this a rly hard decision. Anyone else have some insight, thoughts, opinions on this? Anyone in a similar position and are hesitating?
