How has the pandemic affected your learning experience in the 2020/21 academic year?
Jan 13, 2021
I am a distance learning student (like Adam) so the lockdown and other lesser restrictions have not affected directly the delivery of my courses. However, my studies have been adversely affected by the closure of, or limitation of access to, libraries in London on which I rely for some of my research materials. I have been able to manage reasonably well, but senior management need to be aware of adverse effects of this kind on distance learning students whose actual teaching delivery has not changed. As Adam says, course materials for Opera Studies have not been updated, but that is for a different reason which is entirely within the control of the College, namely budget allocation.
