Covid-19 information

Protect our community, Protect the vulnerable, Protect yourself

As a truly international School, we recognize this is an uncertain time for all and are working hard to share clear information. 

The health, welfare, and safety of our visitors, students, course participants and employees is our highest priority. We are a department of the University of Oxford and are following their guidance and advice.


Accredited programmes

With government guidelines continuing to evolve here in the UK and further afield, we have been working to determine how we can safely deliver our programmes from September in a way that is in keeping with the unique experience that comes from joining our institution

Our faculty have come together to innovate, developing an enhanced learning experience that reflects the new circumstances we all face. Drawing on the quintessential Oxford style of learning, a substantial portion of teaching will be delivered in small groups in person, led by our faculty. This will be complemented by high quality, digital learning experiences. This approach deepens and extends the shared learning that has always been at the heart of our approach, while providing flexibility to respond to evolving guidance on public health and physical distancing.

In addition to our academic courses, our co-curricular, career development and social activities are a very important part of the experience; we will continue to offer these activities in accordance with University and UK government guidance.

Our priority is the safety of our community and we are making extensive plans to prepare the School to accommodate the changing requirements. Our Programme teams are keeping our student community updated with the latest information. Please contact your Programme services team for any queries.
