Covid Quarantine Support Package
I am delighted to inform you that the University of Sussex has approved a generous package of support for international students arriving from overseas in 2021.
For students travelling from “Red List” countries in 2021 the University of Sussex will offer a reimbursement of the full cost (up to £1750) of a stay at a government quarantine hotel.
For students travelling from “Amber List” countries in 2021 the University of Sussex will offer the following package of measures:
- Students who booked university managed accommodation can arrive early from 23 August to 10 September and will not be charged rent during this 10-day quarantine period
- All students arriving, at whatever date, will quarantine in their permanent residence
- Students will receive up to £50 towards the cost of a PCR Test and Release test
- Those in quarantine will be eligible for an isolation payment (£36 for university managed accommodation and £60 for privately managed accommodation)
Full details of these measures will be announced shortly but in the meantime please ensure your applicants for Sussex are aware. Cards to promote this package on social media are at the end of this email for you to share.
