UK University News Updates - 9th July 2021
This is weekly UK university news by UKEC.
We’ve been sharing some information about Clearing for the last couple of weeks. This week, we’ve got more information from Russell Group Universities: University of Lancaster and University of Newcastle.
Indeed, it is the Clearing season. If you’d like to start your course in September 2021 and still haven’t received any offers, you shouldn’t miss any chances available now.
We’ve also gathered updates regarding supports for international students at University of Central Lancashire.
<University of Lancaster>
Clearing has now opened for all courses with the exception of Medicine, Psychology (Study Abroad) and Law (Study Abroad) at University of Lancaster. Any students interested in applying to us through clearing are encouraged to submit an application through their website here.
They’re also hosting an online open day this Saturday which will be a great opportunity for students to interact with each department, current students and more. You can join through the following link here.
<University of Newcastle>
There is still time to apply for an undergraduate course starting September 2021 at Newcastle University; If you’d like to submit an application, please contact us to check availability of the course and required document list.
<University of Central Lancashire>
University of Central Lancashire announced that they’ll provide supports to international students during the quarantine period.
Staff will be on hand to help deliver your online shopping food orders directly to your flat. Your learning will be online during this period, so you do not miss out on any aspects of your course.
If you are travelling from a country on the UK ‘red list’ you will need to quarantine in a special hotel at a cost of £1,750 per adult. However, to help support you with these costs, University of Central Lancashire will provide you with a tuition fee refund of £750, in the second semester of your studies; if you pay your full year tuition fees by 17 October 2021. However, this support only applies to students and they are not able to provide support for quarantine for any dependents or family members who travel to the UK with you.
If you are travelling from a country on the UK ‘amber list’ and have booked University accommodation for the academic year, they will provide appropriate self-isolation accommodation free of charge for the required 10 day period. You will be able to access this accommodation from 12 September 2021. On arrival you will be provided with a welcome pack of supplies and details of how to order food and personal supplies online.
If you have further questions regarding information above or UK university application in general, ask our team, we’re always available to help.
Remember, UK education is UKEC.
