Cambridge University has become the first university in the world to axe all face-to-face lectures until summer 2021 due to 'rigid social distancing.'
Britain's second oldest university said that because social distancing appeared to be likely to continue for a long time, 'there will be no face-to-face lectures during the next academic year.'
The institution, which prides itself on academic rigour, did not say how it would continue to maintain the highest standards with students kept at range.
Other universities, including Oxford, Edinburgh and Cardiff, are planning a mixture of on-campus and remote lectures from the start of the academic year.
