Information for students, staff and applicants

Living with Covid

The University’s Pandemic Planning group has considered the government’s Guidance for living safely with respiratory infections, including coronavirus (Covid-19), 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:

  • Take up the offer of a Covid-19 vaccination or booster, if you are able to
  • Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser
  • Wear a face covering on campus if you wish to
  • Please report a positive Covid-19 case by completing the notifiable diseases reporting form for staff and students (select Covid-19 in the reporting form) to the University, stay at home and avoid contact with others
  • Stay at home if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as Covid-19.

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.
