International students

The International Student Support team helps international students settle into life in the UK and make the most of their time at UCL and in London. These pages provide practical guidance on healthcare, banking, transport and safety, as well as information about orientation for new international students (ISOP).

Students travelling abroad or arriving in the UK over the winter period.

It's important that students are aware of the rules and regulations regarding international travel over the Christmas break. 

UCL has created detailed guidance on travel advice for UCL students both domestic and international, what types of COVID-19 test are available to students and what you'll need to do when returning to the UK and UCL.

To see full details on these topics, please visit the UCL coronavirus website.
