The Economist: The absent student

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 18 agosto 2020

“Our cover this week looks at universities in the age of covid-19. For students, the pandemic is making life difficult. Many must choose between inconveniently timed seminars streamed into their parents’ living rooms and inconveniently deferring their studies until life is more normal. For universities, it is disastrous. They will not only lose huge chunks of revenue from foreign students but, because campus life spreads infection, they will have to transform the way they operate. The universities’ troubles are piling up. China, the origin of many international students, is falling out with the West. Governments are suspicious of college politics—and doubt how much subsidised degrees benefit the economy. Students are sceptical that they get value for money. Although covid-19 will be painful for universities, it also presents a chance to set things right by embracing long-needed change”. By Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-In-Chief
