If you are arriving in England
You can arrive early at your accommodation (up to a maximum of 2 weeks early) so that you can complete the period of self-isolation before the start of your programme. You will not be charged for the period of time in self-isolation in Kaplan Accommodation before the commencement of the UK University Ready programme, but you should book this with Kaplan in advance of arrival.
If you have chosen to use a Supplementary Study option, allowed once you have your visa approved* to study the 2 week programme in Nottingham or Brighton, you can only arrive in the UK within 4 weeks of the start of your degree programme, so please check to make sure your arrival date, including the time you are on the UK University Ready programme, does not exceed this.
If you are arriving in England and have not been in a red list country in the last 10 days, you can see the latest UK government guidance on the gov.uk website.
If you are arriving in Scotland
You will need to quarantine in a designated “quarantine” hotel if you are travelling directly to Scotland; you can see the government’s guidance on the gov.scot website.
In this case, if you have arranged accommodation through Kaplan, the period of the accommodation charge will be reduced by the length of the quarantine duration, up to a maximum of 10 days.
If you do not need to self-isolate before starting your course, and you choose to arrive at your Kaplan-arranged accommodation in advance of the start of your course, you will be charged for the period from when you move into your accommodation to the beginning of the course.
*Supplementary Study can be taken in addition to your main course of study; you are allowed to undertake supplementary study (e.g.) short courses studied full-time during vacation periods. Supplementary study can be in any subject and does not have to relate to your main course of study. It may be taken at any time during the period of leave granted for your main course of study, including before, during or after the main course.
