Self-isolation support (students)
Guidance, advice and support for students self-isolating.
You will need to self-isolate if:
You have travelled to Scotland and are not exempt from self-isolation requirements (guidance on who needs to self-isolate after travelling internationally can be found on the Scottish Government website).
You have symptoms of Covid-19 - please arrange a PCR test.
You are a close contact of someone who has tested positive (if you aren't fully vaccinated).
If you are self-isolating because someone in your household has tested positive - even if you have not met them or had recent contact with them - you may have still come into contact with the virus from shared facilities. Please see our guidance on self-isolation for more advice on when you require to self-isolate and when you can end self-isolation.
Tell us you are self-isolating
If you’re self-isolating, you will need to let the University know by completing our self-isolation contact form. We can then ensure you receive all available support to help you during this period.
You must also inform us if you receive a positive test result for Covid-19. This must be done even if you have already completed the form to advise us that you are self-isolating.
Once you have completed your self-isolation or are no longer required to self-isolate due to being fully vaccinated and receiving a negative Covid-19 PCR test, please let us know by completing the form below:
Data Protection - Privacy notice
We have updated (October 2021) our privacy notice which covers what we do with the data of those staff and students who report to us they are Covid-19 positive.
We want to make sure that you still feel connected to our community while in self-isolation. There is also a whole host of activities, including online social events, ways to keep active, and things to keep you busy while you’re self-isolating.
