All students studying one of the above listed courses must be double vaccinated against Covid-19 by 1 April 2022*.
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in England has recently announced that all NHS and Social Care staff will need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 if they wish to be deployed in roles that involve face to face contact with service users.
Due to the nature of your course of interest, clinical / care placements in the NHS and social care settings form an essential part of a student’s education, placing them within the mandate.
This means that any student going into practice-based components of these courses will need to be double vaccinated by 1 April 2022.
Information regarding students who choose not to be vaccinated
Some students may choose not to be vaccinated for a number of reasons, or who cannot receive the vaccination for health reasons. Brunel University London has a duty to support these students.
If you are eligible for the vaccine, but have chosen not to be vaccinated, please email email@example.com. We can then collaboratively explore any reasons for students not wishing to be vaccinated. If following this discussion, you decide that you still do not wish to be vaccinated against Covid-19, this will impact your application to study at Brunel.
If you have been unable to take the vaccine for health reasons, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you believe this to be the case. You will be referred to our occupational health team, which can confirm that you are exempted from vaccination.
If you have been vaccinated against Covid-19, you will be required to provide evidence to confirm this at point of application.
All incoming students who are planning to study one of the above listed courses must be double vaccinated against Covid-19 before the start of the course.
Please see above for further information if you choose not to be vaccinated or are medically exempt.
If you have any general queries about the vaccination, please email email@example.com
Guidance for international students can be found on the GOV.UK website. Here you can find the list of approved vaccines.
*Please note Brunel is aware that the mandatory vaccine policy is under Ministerial review and we will add an update here in due course.
