“Red list” arrivals – funded quarantine package
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Leeds for the start of your course, and want to limit the impact of the UK travel guidance on your arrival.
If you'll be in a red list country in the 10 days before you travel to the UK, you will be required to quarantine in a Government managed hotel. Leeds Beckett will provide a fee discount equal to the cost of your hotel quarantine package. The contribution will take the form of a fee discount and not an upfront payment. This will be applied after full enrolment and upon production of a receipt of the quarantine package booking. The total financial contribution will be £2,285 for students arriving from 21 August 2021.
You will need to pay for the Government quarantine and test package prior to traveling to the UK. Upon completion of your 10-day hotel quarantine stay, you will submit your receipt to the university to receive your fee discount. To allow us to check your eligibility, please upload a copy of your quarantine package booking receipt to your Online Welcome account in the section named ‘Upload a copy of my passport/visa’. When asked to select file-type, please select ‘Other’ and then give the document a suitable title (for example, ‘quarantine package booking receipt’).
This document will then be checked during your International Check-in appointment. If eligible, the fee discount will then be applied.
To find out more, including which countries are on the red list and how to make a booking, please visit the UK Government website.
- We will not cover the costs of quarantine for family members or dependents
- This financial support is available to new and continuing students, however it is only available once, when you arrive in the UK for the start of your course. If you leave the UK at any point during the year, you will have to pay any further quarantine hotel costs yourself when you return
Staff and students will be available to support you virtually during your quarantine period and you will be able to access our meet and greet service once your quarantine period is finished.
