Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed the move from Queen’s University to deliver lecture material remotely with all face-to-face lectures ceasing.
The party’s Economy Spokesperson said:
“I strongly welcome this action by Queen’s University to protect the health and well-being of students, staff and the public during the Coronavirus crisis.
“I’ve spoken with the Vice-Chancellor and welcome the fact that plans are also being made around assessments, exams and other forms of teaching.
“The university has reminded students that the wellbeing drop-in service continues to be offered and have said that they intend to provide additional support.
“This is very much a fast-evolving situation and it is being kept under constant review.
“It’s vital that we have a joined-up approach across the island to deal with this pandemic.”
