UK Vaccine Update

The UK is Leading the Way in the Vaccine Rollout

The Covid-19 vaccine roll-out in the UK is far ahead of the rest of Europe and amongst the best in the world. The UK is expected to be one of the first countries in the world to be fully vaccinated, likely by summer 2021, meaning September 2021 entry will be safe for students and staff. To date over half the poulation has been vaccintaed with an average of 4 million people vaccinated weekly.

International Student's Vaccine Access in the UK

International students in the UK will be able to access the various vaccinations available as they are rolled out across the country, meaning they may receive the vaccine quicker in the UK than their home country and will be protected when returning home. The roll out is age based so unfortunately those under 30 years old, will be one of the ladst groups to be vaccinated, but it is hopeful they will be completed by late August.

September 2021 Entry for International Students Attending UK Universities 

The UK government published its Covid-19 roadmap in February 2021 and, ahead of the next main student intake in September 2021, UK universities are processing university applications as normal and the traditional study and learning face to face is expected to return.
