Plan your journey
Check your emails for international arrivals and airport collection dates.
Look at the Travelling to York pages and plan how to get to the university. Make sure you complete the international arrivals form. If you are travelling via Manchester Airport, book a place on our free airport collection coach.
Keep up to date with current COVID-19 guidelines. You must provide your contact details 48 hours before travelling to the UK by completing the gov.uk passenger locator form. Check whether you need to self-isolate (quarantine) for 14 days when you arrive in the UK and read guidance for self-isolating (gov.uk).
Tell your family and friends how you will contact them once you arrive in the UK. If you are staying in York St John accommodation, you will have free Wi-Fi in your room. Look into an international add-on for your phone plan, so that you can call and text as soon as you arrive in the UK. We also have UK SIM cards available, with free credit to get you started.
