Coronavirus Kent: University of Kent set to deliver lecture online from March 23

The University of Kent has confirmed it is to deliver lectures online from next Monday, March 23.

It comes amid mounting concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and follows a decision by the University of Greenwich to stop all face-to-face teaching.

The University of Kent, which has campuses in Canterbury and Medway, said it is "preparing to deliver teaching online across the university" from Monday week.

The statement adds: "We are treating the week of March 16 as a transition week to accelerate the work already under way to enable this to happen."

A number of other universities around the country, including the likes of the University of Liverpool, announced this weekend students would no longer be expected to physically attend lectures.

Kent had already started to deliver its teaching at its European centre in Athens, Paris, Brussels and Rome remotely rather than through the classroom or face-to-face delivery.
