University of Liverpool to Cancel Face to Face Teaching Amidst Rising COVID-19 Cases

The University of Liverpool has cancelled face to face teaching for the foreseeable future, as a result of the growth of Coronavirus cases in the city. 

In an email sent out to students, Vice-Chancellor Dame Janet Beer, detailed the pivot to online learning and what this means for students. 

We have today agreed that face-to-face teaching will, for the rest of this month, be limited to essential delivery for students in clinical, laboratory and other practice-based disciplines, and that required for professional accreditation. The campus is a safe place to be but, by further reducing face-to-face teaching, we will contribute to the city’s wider goal of reducing interaction between different household groups and help to reduce the spread of the virus. 

The change will take place with immediate effect, initially until Friday, 30 October. These arrangements will be reviewed on Friday, 23 October, again on the basis of latest public health advice and further discussion with neighbouring universities, and we will communicate further with you at that time. ” Vice Chancellor Dame Janet Beer 

Students will receive a new, updated timetable in the coming week, as well as emails from their respective departments regarding the move to online learning.
