By Zainab, The University made an announcement on friday tor its student to stay away from all of the Campuses from March 16 2020 due to the spread of the deadly disease known as Corona Virus.
While some students think the University authorities should provide more information to international students on the Corona Virus. Other students think since the Government has not provided enough information, the University will have to wait until they do.
Paulina Kuchorew is from Poland, currently studying MA Creative Media Practice at the University of West of Scotland.

Marianne Mandy is a musician from Kenya, currently studying MA Music and songwriting at the University of West of Scotland said “There should be more communication, but the silent is a bit loud at the moment” but she think everyone should not panic about the situation but also remain here in the UK because travelling might also increase the risk of contacting the virus.
