British university students will be able to return home for Christmas despite the impact of local Covid-19 lockdowns that are already impacting students in large parts of the country, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said today.
"We are going to work with universities to make sure that all students are supported to return home safely and spend Christmas with their loved ones if they choose to do so," he told lawmakers.
"There may be a requirement for some students to self-isolate at the end of term."Last updated: September 29 2020 03:08 PM
