Covid-19 Testing Arrangements for students

We are asking all students to take part in asymptomatic COVID-19 tests before they return to University and whilst at University. This will help those who are asymptomatic but could spread the virus know that they have to self-isolate. We strongly recommend you take part in the asymptomatic tests to help keep your university community safe and help keep campus activity safe and open.

The tests are available free of charge.

Order rapid lateral flow home test kits on GOV.UK. You can order 1 home testing kit (7 tests) at a time. Delivery takes 1 to 2 days.

You can collect rapid COVID-19 tests from most pharmacies. Find out if a pharmacy near you is offering this service.
