Coronavirus COVID 19 Update August 2020



Corona virus COVID 19

PLEASE SEE THE UNIVERSITY WEBSITES FOR UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION.

Check your emails every day for updates from the Universities.

Nobody can say exactly what will happen tomorrow, let alone September 2020, so it is impossible for me or anyone else to predict what will happen in the next few weeks and months. All I can say for sure is that the Universities of Bath, Warwick and Nottingham, just like other universities in the UK and around the world and in Thailand, are dealing with things as they arise. This is an ongoing situation that changes by the day. Some students have decided to study in the UK this year and the benefit of that is they will be studying and away from the workplace at a time when the World is in a very confused state - by studying you might well be better-prepared for future events and able to better deal with the changes that will inevitably happen as a result of the corona virus.

To put it into perspective, it is like a foreign tourist thinking of coming to Thailand asking you this question: “Concerning the coronavirus, please can you advise me whether Thailand will allow me to enter in September 2020?” How would you answer that question? My personal advice right now is to wait and see what happens in the coming few weeks and then decide - universities will likely allow deferral to 2021.

POSTGRADUATE: If you need Pre-sessional English, the Universities will be informing you of their plans (online classes, etc), but if your offer is unconditional it will (as of now August 2020) remain open until late August 2020, so you do not need to decide yet.

UNDERGRADUATE: You will be informed via the UCAS Track or by the universities direct on an individual basis. Certainly, you will not be required to submit A-Level or IB grades; instead, assessment will be based on school results, predicted grades, etc.

What I can say for sure is what the Universities are doing right now (regarding many issues including online classes, etc), so this gives you some idea of how they will deal with future events – please look at the University websites for the most up-to-date information.

I am sorry I can’t predict the future, but I can say that the UK universities will do their best to deal with the situations as they arise.
