Emma Hardy – 2020 Comments on University Starting Dates

The comments made by Emma Hardy, the Shadow Universities Minister, on 2 December 2020.

The Government has finally listened to Labour’s call to set out a plan for the safe return of students to university in January. However, the delay in providing this guidance has caused huge, unnecessary stress for students and universities.

Ministers must now work with universities to ensure a staggered return works for all students, and universities receive the tests and support they need.
