Supporting you if you need to quarantine

We understand the issues quarantine can present, so we’re here to help. If you need to quarantine in a government-managed hotel when you arrive in the UK, we'll support you with up to £1,500 credit or refund.

Terms and conditions apply, please see below.

Travelling to the UK from a red list country

You can enter the UK if you’re travelling from a red list country and you have a Student (or Tier 4) visa – this is because you have residence rights in the UK while you’re studying.

There are extra measures you must follow if you’re arriving from a red list country. These include taking COVID-19 tests before and after your arrival, and quarantining in a government-managed hotel for 10 days on arrival. You must follow these rules even if you’ve been fully vaccinated.

Managed Quarantine

We encourage students who must undertake Managed Quarantine to arrive two weeks ahead of their start date to complete this quarantine. However, if you are not able to complete your Managed Quarantine ahead of course-start date and there is an overlap in your Managed Quarantine and the published start date of the program, you wouldn't be charged for INTO-managed accommodation for any overlap up to a maximum of two weeks from the course start date. Those using a Third Party accommodation provider will be bound by the provider's Terms and Conditions.
