Do I have to arrive early to complete the self isolation period before my course starts?
We will be following the guidelines set by the UK Government with regards to the self-isolation period for new arrivals to the UK. Currently, there is a 14 day self-isolation period in place meaning that you will need to arrive early to fulfil the Government guidelines. You do not need to complete the form or self-isolate if you are travelling from one of the specific exempted countries or or from Ireland, the Channel Islands, or Northern Ireland, as long as you had been resident in those countries for 14 days or more before departure.More information can be found here.
What information do I need to provide when I arrive in the UK?
Upon entry into the UK, you will be required to provide your journey and contact details via a form. More information can be found here. You must complete this form before you arrive in the UK. You cannot submit the form until 48 hours before you’re due to arrive in the UK. You will need to show your completed form when you arrive at the UK border, either by printing a copy, or showing it on your phone. You do not need to complete the form if travelling from Ireland, the Channel Islands, or Northern Ireland, as long as you have been a resident in those countries for 14 days or more before departure.

Will private rooms in the community be available to book if I don't want to live on campus?
Yes, there are many choices in Liverpool when it comes to student accommodation. We recommend that you only use the University-sponsored agency called Liverpool Student Homes. More information can be found here. We do recommend that you live on campus as you will have the support of our Residential Life team. Please contact email@example.com for options.
If I book my Accommodation and accept the Contract and pay my deposit, will I be able to get a deposit refund if I don't take up my course offer? Will I be obliged to pay for the room, even if I don't use it?
We refund deposits if students do not meet the requirements of their course and we withdraw or reject them. If a student decides they do not want to attend we would only refund the deposit if we can re-let the room to another student. They would only be liable for the full accommodation contract fee if they have arrived and collected keys.
If you are partially teaching online in the first semester and I have to be on campus, what will life be like?
We hope to open classrooms for limited numbers of socially distanced students, so we will teach face-to-face as much as we can. Our courses have been converted for on-line teaching, so, no matter what the restrictions, we can adjust our teaching methods to suit the circumstances, even if they change mid-semester. Our priority is to offer you our usual high quality of teaching and your Tutors will be available to support you at all times.
We are working to ensure that a range of social and other activities are available to you during the first weeks of term. An important part of university life is the social life of students and the important sense of community that being together brings.
We will endeavour to open our catering outlets and social spaces as well as the Library and learning spaces, so the campuses should operate as normal, but with social distancing restrictions in place to keep you safe.
If you are teaching online for the first semester and I don't need to be in the UK, what date would I have to arrive for the second semester?
The start date for second semester would depend on your course and year of study. If this is the case, you would be updated on dates nearer the time.
Would I still have to self-isolate for two weeks in January 2021?
Unless UK government guidelines change, yes - you will need to self-isolate for 14 days. We will inform you prior to your arrival of exact procedures, but we advise keeping up-to-date with Entering the UK guidelines: www.gov.uk/uk-border-control
Will I be allowed to travel in Europe?
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel. However, government guidelines for your home country may differ and must be abided by. Always check the FCOs advice if you intend to travel from the UK: www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
