Last week, universities minister Michelle Donelan told The Tab that, depending on the government’s decisions following a review of the coronavirus restrictions, students may be able to return to campus from 8 March. 

Currently, in-person teaching is only available for a select number of essential courses. 

Whether this changes is dependent on the COVID rates in the UK, and whether the government deems it safe to reopen campuses or not.

However, even if you are able to return to the UK, there are strict guidelines that must be followed.

Here’s the latest advice you need to know if you’re travelling to the UK as an international student.

  • You must have proof of a negative COVID test result taken within 3 days of your departure to the UK. 
  • Upon arrival, you must then have another COVID test within 72 hours. Failure to do so could result in a £500 fine. 
  • You must also quarantine for 10 days, and conduct COVID tests on the 2nd and 8th day, which you must book online. This costs £210. 
  • If you are travelling to Scotland, you must quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel.
  • If you are travelling to England, you must quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel if you are travelling from or through one of the red list countries. India is not on this list.
