If you are hoping to study with us in September, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to make your journey to us as safe and as easy as possible. The UK vaccination programme is well underway and is one of the most advanced in the world. On our campuses, we are continuing with our safety measures including providing testing for those coming on to campus, and maintaining hygiene and social distancing practices.
We are planning a high-quality campus-based experience for the academic year 2021/22, supplemented by excellent digital resources to enhance your educational experience. The majority of our courses are designed to be taught in person so that you can get the most out of your degree. So if you’re able to travel to our campus in September, we’ll look after you from the moment you land, including offering airport pick ups. For the latest information and guidance on travelling to or from the UK including from Green, Amber and Red countries please visit our student travel pages.
Financial support for quarantine
We understand that the added costs to travel from ‘red list’ countries to the UK will be a worry for many students. As a result, we will have a dedicated fund which will provide support towards the costs of quarantine for those students entering the UK from countries on the UK Government's 'Red List' in September 2021. More details will follow shortly – in the meantime you can check our FAQ page and our remote study page.
With travel restrictions due to Covid-19 changing all the time, it is best to stay up-to-date via the UK Government website. If you have specific queries regarding international travel, you can submit an enquiry via our online form. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Exeter.
Airport pick ups
We'll be putting on an Airport Collection Service from Heathrow to get you to our campuses:
- Exeter Streatham and St Lukes Campuses - 26 August and 11 September
- Penryn campus: 2 and 9 September
We'll be in touch before the end of July with details of how you can apply and book this support.
Remote studyIf you are unable to travel to the University of Exeter to take up your place in person due to national or government travel restrictions, either in your own country or in the UK, please be assured that we will provide you with an appropriate form of high-quality remote study during Term 1 (Monday 20 September - Friday 10 December 2021). This will apply for most of our programmes, except those which have in-person only teaching requirements, such as some lab-based/practical programmes. Find out more about remote study.
