Guidance if you anticipate a delayed arrival
On 13 April the UK Government announced that universities can resume in-person teaching for all students from 17 May 2021. Students who are studying practical or practice-based subjects and require specialist equipment and facilities were already allowed to return on 8 March 2021.
The University plans to resume on-campus activities for postgraduate students from 17 May 2021. You will be contacted by your course team via the course Blackboard site with information about planned delivery in person.
International students who have not travelled to the UK yet
If you are expected to take part in on-campus teaching from 17 May onwards, please follow the UK Government's guidance to plan your arrival in the UK. You should continue to engage with your studies remotely. If you are unable to arrive on time to start in-person teaching, you should contact your course team for advice.
If you have already made plans to travel to the UK before 17 May and you are unable to change them without significant cost, you may arrive as planned.
Please note: You must follow the UK Government’s guidance about travelling to the UK. You must not travel to the UK from, or transit through, a ‘red-list’ country.
The University provides support during the quarantine period, as well as financial assistance to cover the cost of the COVID-19 tests required on arrival in the UK.
Late arrival notification
Please notify us of your travel plans by submitting the late arrival notification form. You will receive confirmation that the University has approved you for late arrival which will be required when crossing the UK border.
Please note all international students had to enrol and start learning remotely by 22 January. If you are not fully enrolled, you must not travel to the UK.
