Returning to Bath after the winter break

The UK Government have now issued a full UK National Lockdown and has advised students to “remain where they are wherever possible, and start their term online, as facilitated by their university until at least mid-February”. If you had been planning to travel to Bath during this time please read the University’s Frequently Asked Questions about the 2021 National Lockdown and returning to Bath.

If you have travelled overseas for the winter break, you will need to check any additional entry requirements and restrictions that have been introduced due to Covid-19 before travelling to the UK. You should also check to see whether the country you have visited is on the UK’s travel corridor (exemption) list. If you are travelling from a country that is not on this list, you will need to self-isolate in your usual accommodation in Bath for ten days from when you were last in a location not on the travel corridor list. You can email to book ten days of University accommodation if you are unable to self-isolate anywhere else.

From 15 December 2020, the UK Government is allowing the option to take an accredited coronavirus (Covid-19) test from a private testing provider after five days of self-isolation, with a negative result releasing students from the need to isolate from day six. More information on the Test to Release scheme is available. You can opt-in to this scheme by completing a Passenger Locator Form on arrival in the UK. If you wish to take up this option please contact and they will advise you on how a suitable test may be organised.

Transport to Bath from other locations

If you are arriving at other airports or points of entry to the UK you will need to make your own plans to travel to Bath. Please read the UK government’s advice on travelling safely from your point of entry to the UK.
