Douglas College warns of possible coronavirus exposure on campus

Universities minister Michelle Donelan said: "We want to assure students that grades will be equally as valid as those in previous years, and their hard work will be rewarded and fairly recognised". The school will reach out to affected students in the coming days.

Students who applied to Liverpool Hope, Coventry, Manchester Edge Hill, Leeds Beckett and Cardiff Metropolitan universities all reported that their offers have been made "unconditional" in the past few days.

The campuses were already closed to students and non-essential staff last week.

In an update shared with the college community on Monday, Leahy wrote that 19 of the students who tested positive "returned directly to their homes or to off-campus apartments" from their travels overseas.

Many services offered by Durham College will still be offered online.

"The government has asked universities to stop making unconditional offers or amending existing offers for two weeks. You do not need to isolate yourself, visit a doctor, or get tested", said the school.

"I am pleased Universities UK has confirmed institutions will be flexible and do all they can to support students to progress to higher education".

The student's identity is being withheld to protect the privacy rights of the student.

"We support today's call and believe universities will respond positively to ensure that no student feels rushed into a decision at what is already a hard time".
