Travel advice for postgraduate research students

The latest Scottish Government guidance confirms that most students should not plan to travel to term-time accommodation at this point. Where there is a time-sensitive element to your course, a small number of students will be able to travel.

There are some exceptions to this advice, with the following groups of students allowed to be on campus:

  • those who have remained over the winter break
  • those whose attendance is critical and whose education cannot be delivered remotely or postponed, essential placements, or for reasons of student wellbeing

Please note that all arrangements are subject to  future reviews of COVID-19 conditions. We will keep all students updated via email and on this website, as new guidance emerges.

The advice on testing applies to all postgraduate students. If you are travelling to a term-time address you should book a test for the date of your arrival.

Please continue to observe the latest Scottish Government guidance and local restrictions.
