However, heading overseas to study during Covid 19 can be an unsettling experience for both students and parents. That is why Swansea University has put a number of protocols in place to help protect students who are arriving for either undergraduate or postgraduate studies, starting with the moment that students touch down at the airport.
Upon arrival students are streamed into two groups at a hotel at Heathrow airport; those arriving from countries which require quarantine, and those who do not. While waiting for the buses, students are able to play video games, rest and relax. Once the buses arrive, the non-quarantine students to directly into their student quarters. The other group is taken to a building on campus where those who require quarantine can be housed together to form a bubble.
During this time, outdoor space is available so students can relax after their long trip. Bedding is also provided, along with support for online shopping for grocery delivery and any other necessities. Once the 14 day period is over, students are allowed to go directly into their chosen residences.
Across campus. social distancing is in place for all students. In addition, masks are required and hand sanitizing stations are readily available. The other important feature is the flexibility of learning experiences offered to students. Lectures are blended with online learning for those who do not feel comfortable attending in person lectures every day. Students are also given the chance to meet for a few non-credited learning hours a week where they social distance and can talk through projects and ideas with others in a safe manner.
