With the winter break coming to an end, if you haven’t already, most of you will be returning to campus shortly. Below you’ll find the latest guidance about travelling back to campus from within the UK and internationally.
Please remember, you should check the latest UK Government guidance before making any travel arrangements.
When planning your return travel, it is important to arrive in time for your first scheduled day back on campus, whether this be for in-person teaching sessions or in-person exams. You will be expected to attend any scheduled in-person (in an exam room on campus) assessments unless you are prevented by COVID-19 isolation or symptoms, other illness or other extenuating circumstances.
The Semester One teaching and assessment period starts on 10 January 2022 and you should now be able to access your exam timetable. Semester Two teaching starts on 31 January 2022 and your timetable is now available in the Timetables App and in the Timetable Portal.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught students will also shortly receive further details about COVID-19 safety measures for over the Exams and Assessment period. Please keep checking your email for this important information.
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms you should not travel, get a PCR test and follow the latest stay at home guidance until you receive your result. You can book or order a PCR test via the Government webpages. The latest guidance states you can stop self-isolating after 7 days instead of 10 days if you get 2 negative lateral flow test results on day 6 and 7. You can find further information about this on the UK Government webpages.
For those without symptoms or not self-isolating, there are currently no restrictions for travelling within England, however, you should check the rules if you’re travelling from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland or the Channel Islands as there may be restrictions in place.
When travelling it is important to adhere to the following public health guidelines to keep yourself and those around you safe:
With the emergence of the newest virus variant, Omicron, international travel guidance and restrictions are changing frequently. It is your responsibility to keep up-to-date with the latest advice and rules on the UK Government webpages before returning to England.
The latest guidance (as 7 January) advises that those arriving into England do not need to take a PCR test before travelling or self-isolate after arrival, but will need to take a lateral flow test on or before day 2 after arrival and if it’s positive to then take a PCR test.
