Leeds Beckett suspends all classes due to coronavirus

The libraries will remain open

Leeds Beckett University has announced that they are suspending all classes following recent Government advice, with all resources moving online from 23 March.

This comes after the university’s student union officer team wrote to the Vice-Chancellor expressing the ongoing student concern over the virus, requesting that teaching is moved online “immediately.”

Although under constant review, the university facilities remain open at the moment, but there will be no taught classes.

Beckett took to their social media platforms to share the news before an email from the Vice Chancellor, Peter Slee, came later.

The email confirmed that the university is working to deliver assessments remotely where possible, and students should wait for an email from their school regarding more specific details about their classes.
