With the outbreak of COVID-19, we understand that you may have some concerns or queries about the current situation, and how it may affect your time with the programmes. Our promise to you: We will never keep any payment you make to us without providing you with a course.

Policies and procedures regarding the control of COVID-19 at our 2022 Summer Schools will be guided by the public health situation and UK Government regulations in place at the time. We will update this section of our website with more information in due course.

Cancellation, postponement and refund terms governing enrolments for 2022 can be found in our Terms and Conditions of Enrolment.


Covid-19 guidance for programme participants


Ensuring the safety and wellbeing of participants is our highest priority. We've introduced a range of measures to protect you when you are in university and college buildings, in accordance with university and UK government guidelines. These measures may include: enhanced cleaning regimes and additional facilities for hand washing and hand sanitising; spaces adapted to support social distancing with clear signage and markings; a requirement for the wearing of face coverings during in-person teaching and in indoor shared spaces.

You'll be required to follow university and UK government guidelines whilst in Oxford, and to sign a ‘Student Responsibility Agreement’ in advance of the course, confirming that you will do so (this will be similar to the version for university students, which you can review online). Further information is available at www.ox.ac.uk/coronavirus/health. You should particularly review the university’s face coverings policy, which you will need to comply with at all times on university property.

If UK government regulations require you to quarantine on arrival in the UK, then you will need to arrange this yourself at your own expense. Unfortunately, we aren’t permitted to let you quarantine in university accommodation. Travel is not encouraged – and may not be permitted – if you are travelling from or through a country on the UK government’s ‘red list.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@oxfordstudyabroad.org.uk if you have any questions relating to COVID-19 and our programmes.
