We want you to feel safe and confident about living and learning on our campuses in the new academic year. If you are able to travel to the UK we encourage you to start the 2020/21 academic year face to face, however our courses have been designed to allow you to start either face to face or online in September 2020. If you are unsure which course is best for you then discover your study options first or if you have any questions please speak to one of our course advisors.
