One year on: reflections on the pandemic from international university students

We’ve been living with a pandemic for a year and university students have been affected in so many ways. We caught up with some of the students who wrote blogs for us last year to find out how they feel a year on

It’s been a year since Covid-19 was declared a pandemic and university students’ lives were turned upside down. The shift to online learning was a challenge for many, while others had to make the difficult decision of whether to stay at their university or travel home to their families.

We asked some students who wrote blogs last year to share an update on how things have changed in the past year and what they have learnt from 12 months of studying online and social distancing.
