A list of Universities in the UK that are reopening

Written by Pierre Noronha

Born and raised in Mumbai, Pierre Noronha thought that he was destined to be a Chartered Accountant, but all that changed when he discovered his love for writing. Taking this new found passion forward, he started working as a content writer for UniAcco.

COVID-19 has thrown the biggest curveball the further education sector has ever seen. With the September intake just around the corner, students are still trying to figure out whether their university will open their campus on time or will online classes prevail. 

In a welcome move, 87.4% of universities in the UK have confirmed their intentions for their teaching delivery in the next academic year. This news comes as a huge sigh of relief for students, especially international students, who can now look forward to getting their visa and accommodation in place. Furthermore, many countries have announced that they will soon resume international travel, albeit following COVID-19 safety protocols. 

The people in charge of setting policies for universities have received no clear government guidance. However, knowing how important international students are to the GDP of England, it’s only a matter of time before universities start with their normal course of studies. 

Here is a list of all the universities and their declared intentions for 2020/21 –
