LN904 will be delivered online for the first 5 weeks with the last 5 weeks being delivered on campus. LN905 will be delivered on campus. We expect students who take our programmes to be present on campus for any face to face teaching.
We will send you details of on campus registration which will be necessary before you can access teaching on campus. You will be able to book a 1-2-1 appointment to do this from early July 2021.
What guidance is there for travel from outside the UK?
From 17 May 2021, the UK government is revising its international travel rules. Countries have been listed as green, amber or red for Coronavirus (COVID-19). The rules that you will need to follow on arrival in England will depend on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive and which list your country is on, regardless of if you have been vaccinated.
The Department for Education (DfE) has released other guidance for institutions and students studying in England called Students returning to, and starting, higher education during spring and summer 2021. This guidance also states that: residence rights includes those with an entry clearance or visa that grants such leave, for example, students, holders of existing leave to enter or remain such as those students with biometric residence permits, and holders of EU Settlement Scheme (‘EUSS’) leave.
The UK Council for Information Student Affairs UKCISA has some information too as well as some 'Some answers to your questions' that will be a useful source of informatin for you.
Find out which list your country is on.
If, in the ten days before you arrive in England, you have been in a country or territory on the:
- Green list – you must take a COVID-19 test before you travel to England and another test on or before day 2 after you arrive. You do not need to quarantine unless the day 2 test result is positive. Visit this page for further guidance from the UK Government.
- Amber list – you must take a COVID-19 test before you travel to England. After you arrive, you will need to take a test on or before day 2 after you arrive, and on or after day 8. You will also need to quarantine but LSE is offering a complimentary Test to Release COVID-19 test which may shorten your quarantine period. You should also visit this page for further guidance from the UK Government.
- Red list – you will not be allowed to enter the UK unless you are a British or Irish National, or you have residence rights in the UK. Visit this page for further guidance from the UK Government.
- If you have been in more than one country in the ten days before arrival, you must follow rules applying to the country or territory with the highest alert rating. For example, if you are travelling from a green list country but will have also been in or through a country or territory on the amber list in the 10 days before you arrive in England, you must follow the amber list rules.
The above information is a summary based on current UK Government guidance (correct at 12 May 2021). It is important that you refer to the UK Government website for full details of travel rules and requirements.
Please also note that countries and territories can be moved between lists if conditions change so it is important that you stay up to date with guidance. You can sign up for an email alert to be notified when the UK Government guidance page is updated. You should also refer to travel advice and requirements issued by your own Government.
Guidance for travellers from amber list countries
Test to Release Scheme:
The standard quarantine requirement for travellers from amber list countries or territories is to self-isolate in your accommodation for 10 days after arrival. However, you may be able to reduce the quarantine period via the Test to Release scheme.
