By late summer 2021, UCL expects that many of the significant restrictions associated with the coronavirus pandemic will have eased, though some social distancing and some limits to international and UK travel may remain.
UCL plans for campus to be open to all students for the start of the new academic year in September 2021. This will involve a blend of face-to-face and online teaching and learning.
The exact extent of face-to-face and online teaching is dependent on the nature of the course. Each department will update students on the plans for the programme by 1 July 2021.
UCL will continue to provide on campus COVID-19 testing facilities and the Connect-to-Protect tool, zoning systems around our buildings, enhanced cleaning of buildings and teaching spaces, plus asking everyone to wear face coverings if they are able to do so.
Even if your arrival on UCL campus is delayed by travel restrictions, UCL will support you as best they can to commence your studies online for a short period of time until you are able to join in person. These support arrangements will vary across departments and some programmes will be able to support students who cannot travel to London for most or all of Term One.
Note: From 17 May 2021, Singapore will become one of the green list countries that can travel to England without having to quarantine.
COVID-19 Testing: Anyone in England who does not have symptoms can now get regular rapid lateral flow tests to check for coronavirus at a local test site or to do at home.
