We are delighted to welcome our students back. All 6 of our schools across the UK and Canada are now open!

Travelling to the UK?

  • Countries are categorised into Green, Amber and Red lists. Each has specific restrictions upon arrival to the UK.
  • All travellers must have proof of a negative Covid test taken within 3 days prior to departure to England.  See here for more info.
  • Before arriving in the UK, you will need to fill in a passenger locator form.
  • All arrivals into the UK need to take a Covid test on day 2.
  • From Monday, 2nd August 2021, double vaccinated travellers from Europe no longer need to take a day 8 test or quarantine upon arrival. Find out more here
  • Under 18s from the listed European countries do not need to take a day 8 test or quarantine. All children aged 11 to 17 need proof of a negative Covid-19 test to travel to England and children aged 5 to 17 must take a COVID-19 travel test on or before day 2 after arrival.
  • Travellers from France are not included in these new exemptions starting from Monday, 2nd August.
  • All other Amber arrivals into the UK need to take a Covid test on day 8 of being in the UK and self-isolate for 10 days. You can find out more information here
  • The test to release scheme is still in place, meaning that travellers can take a private test on the 5th full day of self-isolation to see if they can end their quarantine period.

Travelling to Canada?

  • We are on the list of designated learning institutions (DLIs). You can start your course with us with a valid Study Permit. Click here for more information.
  • Fully vaccinated students with Study Permits are no longer required to quarantine. They still need to take a PCR test within 72 hours of departing their home country and once they have arrived in Canada. They need to self-isolate until they receive a negative test result. 
  • Students who do not meet the above criteria will need to go through the mandatory 3-day hotel stopover and 14-day quarantine at their own expense. Unaccompanied students under 18 years old are exempt from the hotel quarantine.
  • All travellers are required to upload Covid related information such as their vaccination status, quarantine plan and Covid test results on the ArriveCAN app. 
  • Canada will begin letting fully vaccinated international travellers into the country on 7th September. This means students can return to study on TRV and eTA visas. Click here for the official announcement.
  • All international students are able to receive the Covid vaccine in Canada. You can click here to register for your vaccination.
  • We’re complying with the latest province-wide restrictions which will be in place until further notice.
