The University of Gibraltar adheres to the latest HM Government of Gibraltar guidelines on Covid-19. The University have implemented and maintain a strict on-campus physical distancing policy, have installed hand sanitiser dispensers throughout our building and spaces undergo thorough cleaning on a regular basis. Small class sizes mean that you avoid larger crowds and reduce the risk of contagion.
The University will be ready to welcome you on campus, but also understand that Covid-19 may affect travel plans and delay some visa applications. If you are unable to get to Gibraltar by the start of your programme, you may enrol virtually initially, meaning you can join a little later.
Regular one-on-one contact with a lecturer can really boost your studies. That is why if you decide to start your programme virtually, you will receive the same personal support and contact time as face-to-face students.
Choosing where you live at university is almost as important as choosing where to study. It needs to be a space in which you feel comfortable, safe and happy.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
