If you haven’t had your first dose yet, you can book now at a centre or find your nearest walk-in clinic here. It’s easy to get vaccinated quickly at a time that suits you.
You don’t need to have both doses in the same place. You can arrange your second dose through the booking service, or by going to a local walk-in clinic 8 weeks after your first dose.
We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated ahead of arrival. However for those who haven’t we are offering vaccines on campus at the Dennison Centre on Cottingham Road. Further information about booking a vaccination on campus will be available on your arrival.
If you aren’t registered with a GP anywhere, it’s definitely a good idea to do this as soon as possible, but you can still access a vaccine by finding your nearest walk-in clinic. You do not need to bring any ID.
Vaccinations are available to international students studying in England, regardless of their nationality or immigration status.
Before you travel to University we strongly encourage you to get a Lateral Flow test for Covid-19, either through your local community testing programme or by ordering a test online.
On arrival at university, you should take two Lateral Flow tests using home test kits (3-4 days apart). Students who are staying in on campus accommodation will be given a Lateral Flow Test on arrival.
You should then test twice a week through September, using home testing kits. These are available to collect from the Brynmor Jones Library or to order online.
It is very important that you report your test results online to NHS Test and Trace whether positive, negative or void.
If you have had a confirmed PCR test for Covid-19 in the last 90 days, you do not need to take a test within that time period if you are asymptomatic. You are still required to follow the national guidance for adults who have been identified as a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case, even if this is within the 90-day window.
If you are on a placement and not attending university facilities, you should follow and participate in any testing regime in place at your placement. It is not necessary to travel to university to be tested before travelling to a placement, unless this is advised by the placement provider.
International Students who have arrived from overseas and have completed a period of quarantine – either in a hotel or in their own accommodation should follow instructions on ongoing Lateral Flow testing as above.
Upon notification of a positive Lateral Flow test result, students and staff should follow the national guidance for people who have received a positive Covid-19 test result. It is also important that on receiving a positive test result students and staff should notify the University on the reporting tool via the support portal.
You may not be required to self-isolate if you are notified that you have had close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, for example if you are fully vaccinated. You should follow the national guidance on self--isolation where this applies.
