If you are due to come to the UK to start your course during the national lockdown, you can still do so if you wish. We are organising socially distanced airport transfers to help you get directly to your UK accommodation safely and securely. Study will take place online for the duration of the lockdown, and will transition to blended learning once restrictions are lifted.
From 18 January 2021, you will need to present a negative coronavirus test result to enter the UK from abroad. The test must be taken no more than 72 hours before departure. You will also need to self-isolate for 10 days upon arrival.
From 15 February 2021, you will also need to take 2 coronavirus tests during your 10-day period of self-isolation.
If you are arriving in Scotland from this date, your self-isolation period will need to be spent in a hotel booked by the Scottish government, and you will need to cover the cost of your stay.
You can see the most up-to-date travel advice on the gov.uk website.
Alternatively, you can choose to start your course remotely from your home country with digital learning. Throughout 2020, digital learning was used with great success at all of our UK colleges, and our extensive experience delivering courses digitally means that you can study with confidence.
If you are due to travel to the UK to study later this year, you will be able to do so and join your studies with blended learning once lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
