We are open!

Travelling to the UK?

  • The UK border is now open to all arrivals!
  • Before arriving in the UK, you will need to fill in a passenger locator form. You should fill this in 48 hours before you arrive in the UK.
  • Students arriving in the UK may need to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival, but many are exempt from quarantine measures (check the list of exempt countries here).
  • Quarantine with us for free, find out more here
  • A new lockdown has been announced in England and will take place from 5th Nov to 2nd Dec 2020. We can confirm our UK schools will remain open during this period.
  • More information about the Lockdown rules and regulations can be found here

Travelling to Canada?

  • We are pleased to announce that we have now had our COVID-19 readiness plan approved by the Canadian government and we are on the list of designated learning institutions (DLIs)
  • We’re complying with the latest province-wide restrictions.
  • Our centre has been open since mid-July for students who were already in Canada and we are now excited to be able to welcome new students with study permits at the school. 
  • Provided that you have a valid study permit or a letter of introduction that shows you were approved for a study permit, you can now start your course with us and are exempt from the border closure which has been extended to 21/11/2020. You can find more information about the requirements here.
  • While study permits are generally for periods of study of 6 months or longer, a shorter study term does not preclude being approved for a study permit. Students will need to add a letter of explanation as to why they are applying for a study term of less than 6 months (e.g. an intention to go on to do post-secondary academic studies) and we can provide a template for this letter.
  • Arriving students will need to meet the Canadian quarantine regulations and the Languages Canada Study Safe Corridor Travel Safe package can help with this.
