COVID-19 Guidelines

The UK Covid restrictions have more or less been lifted and the country is slowly getting back to normal. There are, however, rules for people arriving into the UK and you need to make sure that you know what rules you need to follow:

If you are arriving from a Red List country, you will need to quarantine for 10 days in a government mandated hotel which will cost £2,285. You will also need to do 2 Covid tests.

If you are arriving from an Amber List country, you may still need to quarantine which you can do at home, depending on your vaccination status.

Please read the Government Guidelines for more information: Red, amber, green lists: check the rules for travel to England from abroad - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

If you are self-isolating and you require support, please email Tom at t.crichlow@yorksj.ac.uk

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial support or housing during this quarantine period.

If your timetable is not appearing

On some occasions your timetable may not appear on the timetabling system/website. There’s a number of reasons this could be, such as:

  • The most common reason for this is due to late enrolment
  • Throughout Welcome Week the timetable is being edited
  • You have not completed your online enrolment
  • University record system has not transferred your information.

Teaching will be a mixture of online and face to face. Lectures will be delivered online and recorded so they are available for students who are outside the UK or who are quarantining. Seminars will take place face to face on campus. You need to be prepared to travel to campus at least 3 times per week.

It is important that you attend your lectures and seminars as attendance will be taken. Low attendance and engagement can lead academic sanctions.
