I would like to extend my gratitude for your continued support and hard work during these unpresented times, and hope the following updates provide clarity on important topics such as enrolment and travel for students starting their first semester.
“Enrol with confidence – Full Refund Policy“
A: Students that fail the Pre-CAS interview before enrolment and starting their studies on-line;
B: Students that enrol and start online, before doing a Pre-CAS interview and then subsequently fail that interview;
C: Students that enrol and start online, who receive a CAS from the University but fail the UKVI credibility interview and not granted a visa to come to the UK
Current Travel advice
Under the current restrictions, students are asked not to travel to Scotland until at least the end of February in the first semester – therefore, if it is possible for you to delay your arrival, please do so. You will be able to start your studies online, and will be able to travel once restrictions are lifted and the University advises that it is safe to do so.
However, we understand that many students will have already booked international travel. If this applies to you, and your arrangements cannot be changed, then you are permitted to travel on your scheduled travel date.
Please note, the Government has made it a public health requirement for anyone travelling to Scotland from overseas to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, taken a maximum of 72 hours before travel. Please check the Government’s website for full details on the type of test required. Before travelling, you are advised to check with your airline or other passenger carrier to ensure you have the correct paperwork.
Anyone arriving from overseas will also be required to quarantine for 10 days on arrival, regardless of their country of origin and their pre-departure test result.
The latest travel guidance is available on the Scottish Government website.
