The Welsh Government have now published their plan for the safe return of students to Welsh universities following the Xmas break.

Students will be invited to return to campus over a four week period, starting from 11 January, with a phased return to in-person teaching. Universities will prioritise students who most need to return early, such as those studying in healthcare professions, those on placements or who need access to campus facilities.

The safe return of students will be supported through the continuation of the lateral-flow testing pilots, for asymptomatic students, which began at Welsh universities in late November.

Students will be asked to take a lateral-flow test when they return to their university accommodation, before being asked to avoid meeting socially for three days. Those students will then take a second test. Students not taking a test will be advised to lay low and not mix for 14 days.

Leaving University for Xmas Break – Cardiff University

If teaching is moving online for their programme, students can book a free pre-departure coronavirus (COVID-19) test with our in-house Screening Service. Testing is voluntary and we’re advising students to book their test 2-3 days before their last in-person teaching.
By taking a test and waiting for their result, students will be able to decide when it’s safe to travel home.
Students can find out more about leaving Cardiff and booking a pre-departure test on their  student intranet by following the link below.
