Probably as they dont know when a second spike might happen and the virus might be coming back for several years. I suspect there will be some form of online teaching for the foreseeable future.

Of course it should be online! A second wave is coming in Autumn/Winter. Most experts are predicting that. It’s why I’m not staying an Accomodation because I live 40 mins away and get free train travel. Lectures are online and social life is diminished so it’s not worth it

Because a lot of students come from different areas/cities.
Universities have more people in one room than say for example schools.

Why does the government allow restaurants and schools to reopen then ?

Because the government cares about the economy 1st and foremost. They are trying to get a kickstart to try and fix the financial problems the lockdown has caused. I believe they will hold off from doing anything drastic regarding the 2nd wave/spike until the very last minute. Hospitality is a massive sector in regards to putting money into the country. University, not so much.

There would be disruption if unis had lectures as usual, and then in a month or few weeks, or whenever had to hastily shut down and organise online classes. It is much easier, and smarter to just make them all online. Better safe than sorry approach.

No it will not be great for those who wanted the social experience, but theres always the option for a gap year. And I’m sure you’d agree everyones safety is the most important.

Most uni's are doing a blended approach labs and practical stuff which are like restaurants being small numbers of people will go ahead as they can clean it down and socially distance. Then anything that doesn't have to be face to face like lectures which are usually lots of people in the same room will be online as its too dangerous. Plus these thing being online free's up time on the timetable allowing the practical to be spread out into smaller groups allowing better social distancing. Just depends how much of a practical aspect your course has. Of course some uni's are doing full online but the majority thar have announced what they are doing said a blended system. Plus the blended approach won't be forever just until its seen as safe to go back to normal.
