Travel updates and guidance

Covid-19 update

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, with global travel restrictions and local/national lockdowns being implemented with little or no notice, study and work abroad activity will continue to be affected during the 2021/22 academic year.

While the University remains firmly committed to supporting international activities for students, the current unprecedented situation requires us to balance this carefully against the risk and feasibility of international travel during the outbreak.  Any decision the University makes regarding travel must ensure our duty of care to all students is not compromised.  The health, safety and wellbeing of our students remains our number one priority.
