          WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY ABOUT US

          Covid-19

          In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is completely cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will receive a refund. We have never yet had to cancel a London summer experience, having successfully delivered programmes during the summers of 2020 and 2021, with strict social distancing and excellent feedback. We shall of course adhere to all Covid-related government guidelines in place at the time of the programme and keep student safety as the highest priority.

          If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full.
