Northern Ireland's universities only returned to face-to-face teaching for almost all students in September. Prior to that, most degree courses had been taught entirely remotely since March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We remain committed to face-to-face teaching as much as possible and whilst this remains the executive direction," he said. "As always, we will respond to emerging public health guidance or to circumstances such as staff or student absences due to Covid, if required." Cafes and other catering facilities on UU's campuses will be open as well as libraries, sports centres and other student services. However, Prof Bartholomew also said university staff should work from home if their work did not "require them to be physically on campus." Students at UU have been told to continue to wear face coverings in university buildings and asked to take a daily lateral flow test.
