We request full flight details for all students and will send detailed instructions to you with airport diagrams showing where to go, where to meet St Edmund’s College staff and who will be there to meet you.
At each airport, we have an Airport Manager who stays there all day with a team of Summer School staff, and is responsible for ensuring all students and staff are where they need to be. Prior to arrival, you will be given their name, their photograph and a direct phone number for the Airport Manager at your airport.
Arrivals – our Airport Manager will meet each student at the airport, connect them with College staff and ensure they are safely transported to the College campus by minibus, coach or car where they are welcomed, registered, and shown to their bedrooms.
Departures – our Summer School Team will transport all students from St Edmund’s College to the airports. We will accompany them inside the departure lounge, make sure they have checked in their luggage and take them to the security checking area ready to fly home.
Travel Visas - BREXIT
Even though the UK is no longer part of the EU, travelling to the UK to attend a summer school is still as easy as before.
EU and EEA students and students from many other countries can still travel to the UK without a visa and study for up to 6 months. The only change is that all students need a passport to travel and can no longer enter the UK with a National ID Card.
Many nationalities that previously required a Study Visa such as Russian and Chinese nationals can now study on a Standard Visitor Visa.
More information about specific nationalities, and whether or not a visa is needed, can be found on the English UK website.
COVID-19 Travel Testing
St Edmund’s College is authorised by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to administer COVID-19 travel testing for Fit To Fly, Day 2, Day 5 and Day 8 tests. These tests can be administered on our campus.
