Student Travel in the Academic Year 2021/22 - Arrangements in light of Covid-19
The University is committed to a truly globalised experience during your studies. Due to the prevalence of Covid-19 globally, continued uncertainty over potential restrictions and the safety of travel over the next few months, the University has decided to enable student exchanges abroad and international placements to take place where and when this is possible, at least until the end of January 2022.
Your health, safety and wellbeing are our priority and we have put strict safeguards in place in order to mitigate against the risks of international travel and ensure your safety.
We’ve made this decision in order to give you clarity on your options for the 2021/22 academic year with as little disruption as possible and as early as possible to allow you sufficient time to make an informed decision. We also had to take into consideration that you’ll need to make alternative arrangements for whichever decision is made (such as accommodation).
We understand that travel and immigration restrictions are complex and we will continue to support you with your decision-making and preparation.
Our updated guidance is for both outbound and inbound students who plan to do a study/work abroad mobility for the autumn 2021/22.
Studying or working abroad is a great way to broaden your horizons, immerse yourself in another culture, meet new people, learn another language and build up your professional skills to enhance your CV.
