Information for students, staff and applicants

Living with Covid

The University’s Major Incident Team has considered the government’s announcement on 21 February, alongside our own requirements to ensure the safe delivery of teaching as well as local Covid-19 case numbers.

Going forward, we ask everyone in the Oxford Brookes community to:

  • Report any positive case to the University
  • Stay at home if you feel unwell, for any reason
  • Get a vaccination booster when it is recommended
  • Wearing a face covering on campus is now a personal choice.

Travel to the UK

If you are a current student, or will be starting a course at Oxford Brookes, and you have any questions relating to your immigration status or visa more generally, please contact our International Student Advice Team.

Please see the Government website on travel for the latest information about travelling to England.

If you are a member of staff or a student who is reporting a positive Covid-19 test result on behalf of another, or if you are a visitor or non-Brookes employee who needs to report a case of Coronavirus for yourself, please complete our external coronavirus reporting form
