Majority of students do not expect further in-person lessons this academic year

That’s according to a poll by the think tank, the Higher Education Policy Institute

A survey suggests that the majority of university students are not expecting to receive any more face-to-face teaching this academic year.

But two in three students are living in their usual term-time accommodation amid pandemic restrictions, according to a poll by a think tank.

The findings, published by the Higher Education Policy Institute, come as universities in England await details on when all students will be allowed to return to campus for in-person activities.

Last week, Universities UK, which represents vice-chancellors, said institutions want students back on campus “as soon as possible after Easter” for face-to-face experiences and catch-up support.

But more than half are not expecting to receive any more in-person teaching this academic year, according to the Hepi survey of 1,044 students.

Two in three students said they have not received any financial reimbursement from their university or accommodation provider as a result of the pandemic,

19 per cent have received reimbursement from their accommodation provider, 13% from their university and 2% from both.
