UUK guidance: Principles for emerging from lockdown

03 June 2020

Commenting on Principles and considerations: emerging from lockdown published by Universities UK, Dr. Tim Bradshaw, Chief Executive of the Russell Group, said:

“We welcome the principles for emerging from lockdown published today by Universities UK on behalf of the sector, setting out key considerations for universities as they work hard to develop plans to reopen safely for students and staff. While our universities will take an individual approach based on their specific situation and needs, all are united by the determination to continue providing the best possible experience for every student. 

“As we emerge from the current crisis, graduates and postgraduates will be at the heart of our economic and social recovery. In uncertain times, one of the most valuable assets individuals can have is a high-quality education, and this is what our universities are focused on delivering.”
