Information for international student arrival:

If you are a current student, you can find the latest information about returning to campus on our Coronavirus webpages. We will email all students if the guidance changes.

If you are planning to travel to Leeds for the start of your course in September 2021, please check back for recommended arrival dates nearer the time. Please also stay up-to-date on the UK Government's guidance for traveling abroad. 

Self-isolation (quarantine) requirements

What you must do when you arrive in England from abroad depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive. The UK Government has set out red, amber and green list rules for entering England. These categories determine whether or not you have to self-isolate and when you will need to provide a Covid-19 test.

Visit the Self-isolation guidance and support page to find out what you need to do, and what support packages are available based on whether you're coming from a red, amber or green list country.
