He started BA Hons Journalism at UWS at Ayr Campus, a couple of weeks ago, and he is really enjoying this course.

However, with the COVID-19 outbreak, students are not allowed to go to campus and their learning will be different.

Living in Bishopbriggs, Thomas is having a concerning time because of the current situation.

He said: “The situation in Bishopbriggs is quite concerning, pubs are closed for two weeks, and lots of people are staying home, people locally are a wee bit tired and they want that situation will be over.”
