Hey all, just wanted to share my thoughts about Masters students relocating to University e.g. accomodation. Does anyone else feel quite anxious about this and all the uncertainity around COVID19?

I am a Cambridge MPhil offer holder and I dont live in Cambridge, else where in the UK. The university has said that classes will be online for people who cannot attend in person but im not sure if this is only applicable to interational students or for UK students aswell who arent from Cambridge. Does anyone have any ideas if there there will be any flexibility for UK fulltime masters students may not want to relocate in the current climate?

It's completely understandable that you're nervous - relocating to attend university is quite daunting at the best of times and even more so at the moment.

I would recommend speaking to someone at Cambridge - either the course lead for your Masters or one of the admissions team - and seeking their advice. Be honest about how you are feeling and see what options are available to you.

Many universities will be moving to a mixture of online and face-to-face teaching for the 2020/21 academic year. At Keele, for example, we've published a 5-stage plan that tells students and prospective students what they can expect the campus - and university life - to look like come September (https://www.keele.ac.uk/coronavirus/applicants). Whilst it's impossible to be exactly certain what stage we'll be at by then owing to the changing nature of the situation with Covid-19, it does layout different options for different scenarios with regards to teaching, accommodation, catering, socialising, library services etc.

It looks as if Cambridge have something similar (https://www.cam.ac.uk/coronavirus/of...ive-students-0) but if that information doesn't allay your fears or answer your concerns, do get in touch with the university to discuss it.

Hope that helps!
