  • outdoor non-seated events where over 4,000 people are mixing closely for prolonged periods

Please note, the Students’ Union will continue to abide by Welsh Government and University Guidelines and will adapt any events to meet these. Students will be informed of any changes they can expect when booking an event with the SU.

What is the NHS COVID Pass?

The NHS COVID Pass lets you share your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination records in a secure way. It also allows you to show others, when travelling abroad, that you’ve had a COVID-19 vaccine.

Who can get an NHS COVID Pass in Wales?

You can get an NHS COVID Pass if:

  • you were vaccinated in Wales or England
  • you are aged 16 or over

If you were vaccinated outside the UK, you need to get proof of vaccination from the country where you were vaccinated.

    I’m absolutely appalled to see the university support discrimination and medical apartheid. This is a clear sign of moral rot, complete cowardice and submission in the face of creeping authoritarianism.
    Your compliance with such blatant discrimination and disrespect for human rights will leave a lasting impression.
