You will need to be tested and show a valid negative test result to be able to enter the building when first coming back to campus.
If you are not planning, or are unable, to come to campus, you will not need to evidence a negative COVID-19 test but can instead study fully online until the situation changes.
Testing can be done in any government approved testing facility, and we are hoping the MoE will provide us with an additional free session before the beginning of term (we will update as soon as we know).
In addition to this requirement, you will also need to:
- Download and maintain on your phone the Al Hosn App to help keep track of your COVID-19 status;
- Complete a declaration that, to the best of your knowledge, you have been free of COVID-19 for 14 days prior to coming onto campus;
- Complete a Travel Declaration that details whether you have travelled outside the UAE in the 14 days prior to coming onto campus;
- For Undergraduate students, completion of a parent agreement in relation to students following the social distancing measures on campus.
Each of these measures are things that we will follow up further about with more specific guidance and instructions about what you need to do and when you need to do them by. Our aim is to try to work through the requirements in as straight forward a way as we can to make it as easy as possible for you as you start back with us on campus.
This is also a good opportunity to explain a little more about what we are able to do on campus, what will be online and how we aim to support your safety on campus, in line with the UAE Ministry of Education protocols.
