Travel (including fieldwork) risk assessment and guidance during Covid-19 situation 

For the purposes of assessing the risk associated with travel (including travel related to fieldwork and/or conference attendance), the School of Informatics will consider students registered on PGR programmes to fall under the category of UoE staff. Therefore, PGR students should refer to, and follow, the University of Edinburgh Business Travel information for Staff. 

Further information on the process of seeking School approval for PGR related travel/visits is provided in the Updates relating to COVID-19. See section called "Seeking approval of travel (e.g. for fieldwork or travelling to in person conferences".
