International Students Covid-19 FAQs

Here you'll find all the information you need about what to do if you're an international student studying at Edinburgh Napier for the 2021/22 academic year.


Do I need to come to Edinburgh to study my course?

It's important that you travel to Scotland to take part in your learning with us. You will be able to get vaccinated when you arrive, and we have safety measures in place to make learning with us as safe as possible.

All students are expected to be in Edinburgh for the start of the trimester so that you are ready and able to make the most of your studies with us. You will have face-to-face classes that you are expected to attend, which will not be replicated online.

Will I need to quarantine or self-isolate on arrival into the UK?

Scotland's travel rules for people arriving from abroad have now ended. If you’re arriving in Scotland from another country, you do not need to:

  • complete a Passenger Locator Form
  • take any COVID-19 tests before you leave for Scotland, or after you arrive
  • isolate when you arrive

Can I get a Covid-19 vaccine in the UK?

The Scottish Government has confirmed that you will be eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine on arrival in Scotland. When you arrive in Edinburgh, it is important that you register with a doctor as soon as possible.
