UK advice

Many prospective Members may be concerned about the coronavirus, and how it may affect their ability to enrol to study on their chosen course and to confirm their booking to live at Goodenough College.

Goodenough is still open for applications and we have welcomed many new Members this autumn. We will, of course, continue to monitor the likely impact of the situation on applicants from regions affected by the coronavirus, and on how government policy develops in the UK.

We are making every effort to be flexible to accommodate new Members’ needs – see the Future Members area for details.

Goodenough is currently following the latest advice for the UK from Public Health England (PHE), the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), and the NHS.

For UK government guidance and the latest updates on COVID-19 in the UK see the Government website.

For information on COVID-19 in London see the Mayor of London’s website.

The Government’s website provides advice for people affected by travel restrictions associated with coronavirus. The website provides advice for visa customers and applicants in the UK, visa customers outside of the UK and British nationals overseas who need to apply for a passport.

For current and prospective international students, the UKCISA website provides useful information on visas and immigration, fees, student support, and working and living in the UK.  UKCISA also has an excellent advice line providing general advice and detailed visa advice from experts. You can also visit our Members’ Blog area for advice from one of our Members on applying for a Tier 4 visa.

In 2019 the UK Government announced a new graduate immigration route which will be launched in summer 2021. Graduates (or postgraduates) who graduate from summer 2021 will be eligible to apply to remain in the UK for two years after the completion of studies. For the latest information see the Home Office website.

For a range of useful FAQs on how the virus is affecting UK universities, see the Universities UK website.
