Travelling abroad for University purposes

Students and staff can now travel abroad for work or field trips.

Guidelines for staff are available on the Health and Safety intranet pages.

If you’re due to travel abroad on a scheme managed by the Study Abroad Team (Semester Abroad, Year in China, Summer Abroad or a compulsory Year Abroad) during the 2020/21 academic year, then the team will already have been in contact with you about your plans. Make sure that you continue to keep a close eye on your Liverpool email address as the Study Abroad Team will continue to make regular contact to provide further information.

We are hopeful that Study Abroad opportunities from summer 2021 onwards will go ahead as normal. With that in mind, we’re intending to open up applications for all our non-compulsory study abroad opportunities in November 2020, and you’ll be able to find out more about the different options throughout Semester 1. Keep an eye on the Study Abroad web pages for further information.

Those considering travelling abroad should follow all UK Government requirements in relation to COVID risk when travelling abroad. It’s important to be aware that this guidance is changing regularly and you should check the latest information before any travel (both into and out of the UK) on the Government travel advice pages.

Attending conferences abroad is still prohibited until January 2021.
