Archibald welcomes Queen’s University move on Coronavirus

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed the move from Queen’s University to deliver lecture material remotely with all face-to-face lectures ceasing.

The party’s Economy Spokesperson said:

“I strongly welcome this action by Queen’s University to protect the health and well-being of students, staff and the public during the Coronavirus crisis.

“I’ve spoken with the Vice Chancellor and welcome the fact that plans are also being made around assessments, exams and other forms of teaching.

“The university has reminded students that the wellbeing drop-in service continues to be offered and have said that they intend to provide additional support.

“This is very much a fast-evolving situation and it is being kept under constant review.

“It’s vital that we have a joined-up approach across the island to deal with this pandemic.”
