Your institution - travel insurance
Before making ANY travel plans we strongly recommend you check the guidance provided by your employer/home institution and any permissions required to travel.  This should also involve ensuring the appropriate travel insurance is in place to cover your trip and any COVID-19 related disruption.  This applies to International visitors AND UK based participants.   

What is the guidance from your own institution?
We would advise people to check their own institutions guidance before travelling to Edinburgh.
