Coronavirus advice and guidance

We are planning to start on time in September 2020 and look forward to welcoming new and returning students.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our most important priority, and national guidance will help to shape our plans to re-open our campuses in Canterbury, Medway and Tunbridge Wells.

We plan to provide a combination of face-to-face and online learning and teaching. The exact mix will depend on your course. We will keep you updated over the coming weeks and months about the arrangements for your course.

We will also provide a welcome and induction programme to help students quickly settle in.

Above all, we want to make sure we continue to offer the highest quality education and student experience. 

We are monitoring the situation closely and are following the official advice from Public Health England and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as well as guidance from the Department for Education and Universities UK. 

Our frequently asked questions (FAQs) below provide the latest information and advice based on national guidance and our own planning. We’re adding information every day, so please look out for the latest updates.
