This is an evolving situation and we will continue to update on current UK Government guidelines. The latest information and advice from the UK Government on COVID-19 can be viewed here:

The health, wellbeing and safety of all students is a top priority for everyone. For further guidance and support where you are, please contact your individual university directly. Many universities and colleges will be transitioning to more online tuition, but staff will continue to support you in your own institution. We also understand that many students live in shared accommodation and this can be worrying. If you are living in student accommodation and are worried about your health or that of the people you live with, contact the staff member at your university with responsibility for student support. 

If you need help, information or advice – your university is there to help you.  Make sure you have the right contact details within your institution
