Students going to China for new year may not be readmitted without quarantine period, The Guardian reports.

British universities have warned students considering travelling home to China to celebrate Chinese new year that they will face quarantine on their return.

The University of Chester said it had warned its Chinese students in the UK that if they return to their homeland they would not be readmitted without a suitable quarantine period.

Universities across the UK are closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and have followed Foreign Office advice warning people not to travel to the affected region.

The vice-chancellors’ group Universities UK said: “Ensuring the safety and welfare of their students is a top priority for universities. UK universities have been monitoring the coronavirus situation as it unfolds and universities with students in affected areas are working to identify appropriate actions.

“Universities will continue to follow the latest FCO advice and to monitor the situation, which is evolving rapidly.”

Chester has a China Centre based on its campus whose aim is to increase growth of trade and educational links between the UK and China.
