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 recently. 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 holders and applicants in the UK, visa holders 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.

On 5 October 2020 the UK Government announced a new Student visa route to allow international students to get visas more easily and stay in the UK post-study. The new visa route replaces the previous Tier 4 visa route. Visit the UKCISA website for information on applying for a Student route visa outside the UK.
