Do you think university will be back to 'normal' in September?Watch

Kinda. There is a limit to having only 50 people in a class max so that is putting a spanner in the works. At the undergrad level, typical class sizes range from 100 to 400 (depending on the course). Thus it's possible that the main lecture will be a zoom lecture but the seminars (20 people) or tutorials (6-8 people) will be face to face. Typically for a 10-credit lecture, there would be 24-26 hours of lectures/ seminars. That equates to a virtual 1-hour zoom lecture and a face to face 1-hour seminar. I think that's the best you can hope for. The zoom lecture option is not so bad - they will be recorded so if you miss it you can watch the recording and still come prepared for the seminar later that week.
So I'm starting university in September to do nursing and I'm just wondering what people think is going to happen. My mum doesn't think we'll be in for lectures and that they'll still mostly be online because it's going to be a lot of people in one room. I'm hoping we'll at least get to go in for clinical stuff as Idk how I'd learn that at home. What does everyone else think?
I would recommend emailing your university to find out what your university specifically will be doing. All uni's may follow similar guidelines but have specific differences depending on certain courses which require practical's and lab workshops, so it's definitely worth an ask!
