STUDENT SUPPORT EVENT

The Students' Union hosted an event for students on 25 February where you asked us live questions and found out how the Government's easing of lockdown restrictions in England affects you. Here, you can watch the recording of the event.

All Leeds Beckett University students, in Leeds, should take two Covid-19 tests a week, whether accessing campus or not.

Regular testing has the potential to identify anyone who may be asymptomatic (without symptoms) and is therefore unaware they have coronavirus. This will help break chains of transmission among households and reduce the risk of onward transmission. 

Testing is available at both our City and Headingley campuses on weekdays. You can walk up for your tests.

Full FAQs are available on our website.

On 22 February the Prime Minister announced details of the Government's easing of lockdown restrictions in England.

From 8 March, as part of the first step on the roadmap, universities can resume in-person teaching and learning for students who are studying practical or practice-based subjects and require specialist equipment and facilities.

The guidance from the Department for Education asks universities not to ask other students to return if their courses can reasonably be delivered online.

All students will receive an email from your School to let you know how the announcements in the roadmap affect your studies.

The government will review, by the end of the Easter holidays, the options for timing the return of remaining students.

The Government is advising that students do not travel home for Easter, however if you wish to travel for the holidays you are legally allowed to do so only once before 29 April.

If you have recently returned to university from 8 March, please try to avoid travelling again over Easter, this is in order to minimise transmission of Covid-19.

If you do decide to travel you should get tested before you leave and before you return to university. Read guidance on our testing facilities.

We've worked hard to make sure you feel safe and confident about returning to campus. However, you should only come to campus when necessary.
You should also continue to observe the Public Health England guidance on ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’ as well as any additional Covid-19 safety measures in place on campus. Please remember to follow all guidance and signage and wear face coverings where designated. All buildings are clearly marked with a one-way system and regular hand sanitisation points. Please check our 'be safe on campus' pages for more information.

If you have Covid-19 symptoms you must book a test through the NHS Test and Trace Service. You should stay at your term-time address, self-isolate and inform Leeds Beckett through the online reporting form.

Please download the official NHS Covid-19 contact tracing app to help reduce the spread of Covid-19. You will see QR code posters around our campuses that you can scan using the app.
