The FCO has issued an Exceptional Travel Advisory Notice in light of the current pandemic:
As countries respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel and border restrictions, the FCO advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. Any country or area may restrict travel without notice. If you live in the UK and are currently travelling abroad, you are strongly advised to return now, where and while there are still commercial routes available. Many airlines are suspending flights and many airports are closing, preventing flights from leaving.
For more information, please see the latest Government advice.
Government advice on returning from other countries has now been superseded by the Stay At Home guidance.
These measures must be followed by everyone. Separate advice is available for individuals or households who are isolating, and for the most vulnerable who need to be shielded.
Further NHS guidance can be found here.
Some of you may prefer to return home, if home is abroad. We appreciate the reasons why you may prefer that and understand your choice if that is your decision. We will support you on your return. Please notify Student Services if you do decide to return home.
However, if international students do choose to return home overseas now, there will be uncertainty about when you will be able to return to the UK, or what quarantine restrictions may exist on your return. The current situation is predicted to last some months. Potentially, students may therefore miss some of their course and assessments, and this may mean you need to defer studies for a year. We of course appreciate the pressures you are feeling, and will do our best to support you out of the country, and when you return.
We are working hard to flex our courses and assessments to accommodate the changing situation and will continue to keep you updated as arrangements are made.
