If you’ve already had a test
If you have previously tested negative, you can still book a test.

Booking your test
If you are on one of the government-designated courses that will resume on-campus teaching from 25 January, or if you need to access on-campus services in January, you should aim to have two tests before you return to campus.
Essential courses are:
Allied health professions • Nursing and midwifery • Social work • Social care and community studies • Teacher education / Early childhood and inclusion • Policing
When choosing your test appointment, please:
- check when your on-campus teaching resumes, based on the list above and confirmation from your course leader
- plan around your teaching / study activities
book two appointments – the second should be three days after the first
For all remaining courses, on-campus teaching activities will not resume until mid-February at the earliest. Further government guidance will be issued week commencing 18 February.
