2: Check your term dates

Most courses will start teaching on the 25th January, but start dates can vary. Please check the University’s academic calendar for the exact dates for your course. 

We’re working with the UK Government to bring students to campus in the safest way possible, so you may find that most of your teaching is online at first.

Students from some countries will have to quarantine for 14 days when they arrive to the UK. If this applies to you, we recommend that you arrive in time to finish quarantining before your course begins. You can see a list of countries exempt from the quarantine requirement here. If the country you live in isn’t on this list, you will have to quarantine when you get to London. This list is updated frequently, so please check before you travel.

Students living in on-campus accommodation can work with our Accommodation team to make arrangements to quarantine in their room. If you’ll be living in Grosvenor Apartments, please contact them to make arrangements for your quarantine period. If you’ll be renting private housing, please check with your management company or landlord to see what support they can provide while you’re quarantining. Please email if you have any concerns about quarantining.

We know that some students may face delays in getting to St Mary’s because of visa or travel restrictions. If this applies to you, please get in touch with and your Programme Director to discuss your situation.
