A regulatory body has warned UK universities to be honest about online lessons. The Office for Students said universities should not promise that lessons from September would be in-person. Thousands of colleges are giving lessons online because of coronavirus. The quality of lessons often depends on how well teachers can use video websites. Cambridge University said its lessons would be online until the summer of 2021.

The body said universities should be "as clear as they can" about the teaching situation. It said no one knows what things will be like in the autumn. It said colleges should not promise students they would have a normal on-campus experience if that is not true. It said students should know the situation before accepting university offers. The body said, "every reasonable effort" should be made to ensure that, "the quality of their teaching is robust".
