Students will have staggered start dates for returning to uni after ChristmasWatch
Apparently more 'hands-on' courses such as medicine, nursing, dentistry, sciences which need lab access and performing arts subjects like music, dance and drama will be some of the first students returning. Students coming back later will include those studying English lit, history and maths.
Universities have also been asked to prioritise the return of students to return to uni sooner because they don't have access to accommodation or adequate study space or because of mental health reasons.

What do you think of this news and how will it affect you? Do you think this is a wise decision of the government? Are you a student who might be coming back as late as February and how do you feel about studying solely online for longer?

I don't even know when I'm due back after Christmas tbh - all my lectures are pre recorded
