At UBEL, the health and safety of our students are of the utmost importance to us. In light of the current situation of the COVID-19 outbreak, official advice is to avoid non-essential travel.

Because OIVs are not deemed essential to the success of a studentship, nor is it deemed essential travel, we have decided to suspend the next round of OIV funding.

As this is an ongoing situation, we will continue to update you on this matter via email, our website and Twitter account.

Please email us at if you have any questions or concerns.
