Coronavirus: will I be able to complete my master’s and study in the UK?
Brazilian student Lucas Lavoyer is facing huge uncertainty over whether he can complete his master’s and move to the UK to do his PhD due to the coronavirus outbreak
We are experiencing a global crisis due to the Covid-19 outbreak, and our first concern should be our health and that of those around us. This is something we all agree on. However, the potential impact this pandemic will have on my studies has been constantly on my mind during the last few days.
Let me give you a little bit of context. I’m a master’s student studying in Brazil, on the verge of finishing my dissertation. A few weeks ago I got accepted to a PhD programme at my dream university in the UK, with full funding. I can’t put into words how excited I was when I received the email.
