Covid-19 latest information


We are monitoring the situation constantly and following all government advice and guidelines very carefully. On this page you'll find the latest updates for all our students and information on our premises.

University Campus

We are providing regular information and support to all our current and prospective students. 


Current students

We'll be delivering all teaching and assessments online for the first three weeks of this term  (1 to 19 February 2021). We'll then review the situation and guidelines, and if possible teach face to face in Covid-safe groups, as well as online, from then on.

As the situation is changing very quickly, we'll send you updates by email. So, if you're a student with us, please keep an eye out for our emails. 

We are still providing online support to our students however if you need access to our facilities during this period, please contact the HE Programme team directly to discuss the options available. If you have any other questions or need any help, please contact the HE Programmes team.

On demand exams assessed at Pearson VUE centres

Pearson VUE re-opened some of their UK centres in June 2020. So, if you wish, you may be able to sit your exam at one of their test centres. 

If you are unable or prefer not to attend a test centre, most of our exams are available to sit remotely at home. You'll be able to find out more about your particular exam when you register for your course.

If you're planning to go to a centre, please check the relevant health and safety requirements.

Trade finance exams

Certificate for Documentary Credit Specialists (CDCS) and Certificate for Specialists in Demand Guarantees (CSDG) examinations worldwide have been impacted by COVID-19, but some exams are still taking place. We are working closely with our partners in each country and communicating with students affected.
