Arrangements for 2021/22

All of our students will have a substantial and sustained on-campus education throughout the coming academic year, with face-to-face teaching being the default for seminars, tutorials, workshops, practical classes, performance activities and discussion groups (subject to any requirements imposed by Government and/or by law). We will also provide opportunities and space for informal social and group learning on campus, and support and encourage on-campus co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Visit our arrangements for 2021/22 page for more information.

Working together to stay safe

Tests and vaccinations

All staff and students are encouraged to take twice-weekly asymptomatic lateral flow tests. If you don’t have any coronavirus symptoms, you can either get a home testing kit or can book a free and fast asymptomatic lateral flow test on campus. 

Book a COVID-19 test (if the booking system is displaying a ‘server busy’ message, please refresh your browser and try again in five minutes).

If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you must not book an asymptomatic test or attend campus. Instead, you must stay at home and book a test through the NHS Test and Trace Service.

Asymptomatic Test Centre new location and Home Test Collections

The Asymptomatic Test Centre and Home Test Kit collection point is located at Cromer Terrace studio.

Opening hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday (9am-2pm) and Tuesday, Thursday (1pm-6pm).

We recommend that people should have 3 tests at the test centre before converting to home testing.


COVID-19 vaccines are effective. They can keep you from getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 and can also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. We encourage all students, both UK and international, to take a vaccine before returning to studies in September.

Visit our COVID-19 vaccination information for more.
