Studying on the Liverpool Campus

The UK Government is encouraging students who wish to travel home, or to an alternative address, for the winter holiday period to use the designated ‘travel window’ which runs from 3 to 9 December.

Leaving Liverpool for the winter holiday period

By introducing the ‘student travel window’ directly after the national lockdown in England, it is hoped this will reduce the risk of transmission to family and friends at home. Staggering travel within this window will help to manage demand for asymptomatic testing and reduce pressure on traffic and transport services.

Working closely with your schools and departments we have developed a schedule of suggested departure dates. Unless specified, subjects include all years of study in both undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes.
