Study UK and Coronavirus Updates

- All UK Travel Restrictions Removed

The UK government has announced that all remaining restrictions on international travellers arriving in the UK are now removed.

The changes, which came into effect on Friday 18th March, mean that:

  • No-one entering the UK will need to take a test or complete a passenger locator form
  • Unvaccinated travellers no longer need to take a pre-departure test or a day 2 post arrival test

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: "The UK is leading the world in removing all remaining COVID-19 travel restrictions, and today’s announcement is a testament to the hard work everyone in this country has put in place to roll out the vaccine and protect each other."

- International Student Vaccine Priority in the UK

International students in the UK are able to access vaccinations as they are rolled out across the country, meaning you may receive the vaccine quicker in the UK than your home country and will be protected when returning home.

Once you have registered with a local GP in the UK, you can book your COVID-19 vaccination.

Study in the UK

If you would like to discuss your UK university application with one of our consultants, or have any questions about COVID-19 and its future implications for UK study, we welcome one-to-one Skype/Zoom calls with our team who will be happy to help.

Alternatively, you can call us on 020-7287-7040 or visit SI-UK London in-person at our Regent Street office.
