The University has been following Government and Department for Education guidance as it emerges, looking at how it applies to all aspects of our University activities in order to keep our students and staff safe. More information can be found on our other Coronavirus web pages and you can find up-to-date requirements on the Government website.
No, it is not currently mandatory for you to be vaccinated before travelling to the UK.
You will have the option to receive the vaccine during your studies but this is not a compulsory requirement.
The Government and Department for Education no longer requires all students and staff in education settings to test twice a week using lateral flow tests. Testing regularly is now a matter of personal choice, although as you would expect, we would actively encourage students and staff to continue with a regular testing regime, in order to look after their own health and help protect each other.
So long as you register with a doctor upon arrival, you will be offered a vaccine free of charge in line with the UK Government vaccination roll out plan. We will help you to register with a doctor as part of your welcome and orientation activities. Full details can be found on the National Heath Service website.
At the present time, there are no scheduled coach pick-ups from the airport. However, the Student Support and Experience team can help you to organise a taxi so that you can have transport waiting for you when your flight arrives. If you wish to take advantage of this service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
If you are experiencing delays outside of your control, we will apply as much flexibility as we can around your enrolment date. If you are concerned about any significant delays, please contact International Admissions so that we can discuss your individual circumstances.

We encourage students to pay their deposit at their earliest convenience to ensure that you have plenty of time to apply for your visa and make travel arrangements, but we understand that for some students this may not be possible until later in the Summer. We will continue to accept deposit payments and issue CAS letters as long as it is still viable for you to apply for your visa and commence your studies in time for the start of International Welcome.
