Travel and testing

We would recommend that you stay in your term-time accommodation where possible over the Easter break but if you do decide to head home, please get tested before you travel. It’s quick, easy and it makes sure that we’re all doing our part in keeping our community healthy.

International students

As for all students, we would recommend that you stay in your term time address over Easter, but if you do plan to travel, check additional entry requirements and restrictions before travelling and before returning to the UK. Please also check with your programme leader as, if your return is delayed in any way, this may have an impact on your studies.

Library opening hours

Our Libraries will be open throughout the Easter break on our existing reduced opening hours. Take a look at our Coronavirus updates for library users webpage to find information about which services are available, and the changes we’ve made to how we manage our spaces.

Access e-books, databases and journals online and brush up on key study skills with our online study skills workbooks.

Plus, LinkedIn Learning has thousands of online training videos for software, design and business skills.

Wellbeing support

Keep connected

We’re sure you’re looking forward to summer as much as we are but for now, we must keep our efforts up and continue to follow the rules and government guidelines.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t connect and have fun! We’ve pulled together the range of activities and resources available on our University life in coronavirus webpage. You can find online events to keep you connected to others, tips and advice on how to keep on top of your wellbeing and online learning support.
