However, the advice, which comes as Scotland settles into phase three of the route map out of lockdown, will have a limited effect on Aberdeen’s two universities.

Students from Aberdeen University and Robert Gordon University have already begun their summer break or graduated, but the institutions are both working towards welcoming new and returning students to an altered environment in September.

A spokesperson for Robert Gordon University said: “We are taking a university-wide approach to the transition back onto campus, and we are working to ensure that all aspects of the institution are managed to make effective use of the space on campus with public health measures in place...

“We are preparing to start the new semester with a blended delivery of safe on campus teaching and digital learning...

“The university is planning extensively for a return to our campuses and taking all steps necessary to ensure the safety of students and staff.

“This includes robust hygiene measures such as providing face coverings, hand sanitiser stations at key locations, detailed guidance for students and staff on physical distancing, and measures to ensure that building occupancy levels adhere to national guidance.”
