Due to the current restrictions relating to COVID-19 and in line with guidance from the UK Government and the University of Cambridge we have had to make some adjustments to the way we run our programmes, but we have been working with our academic faculty and operations team to ensure we can welcome you back in Cambridge and see our classrooms buzzing with energy and discussion again. Please note that guidance is continuously changing and we will update this page with more information as it becomes available.

What health and safety measures will be in place?
The health and wellbeing of our participants is paramount. We will abide by UK Government and University of Cambridge guidance relating to COVID-19 and the requirements of any venue at the time of delivery. Examples of such measures include social distancing, staggered refreshments breaks, hand washing and the use of sanitisers and face masks. You may also be asked to check your temperature on entering programme venues.
We strongly encourage you to take a rapid lateral flow test (RLFT) prior to attending your programme and ask that you source and carry out the RLFT yourself. Please however do not enter the programme venue if the result of your test is positive or you are feeling unwell with any COVID-19 symptoms and inform us immediately by e-mail on [email protected].
If your programme is longer than three days you are encouraged to repeat the RLFT every three days for the duration of the programme.
We will communicate the requirements and measures to you on the lead up to the programme and all participants will be expected to adhere to these. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
What if I become unwell before the programme, or during the programme or my RLFT shows a positive result?
If the result of your RLFT is positive or you are feeling unwell with any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not travel to Cambridge or the programme venue and let us know you are no longer able to attend. If you are already in Cambridge or the programme has begun and you become unwell, please do not come to class and let us know immediately by email on [email protected].
If you think you may have COVID-19, please visit the NHS 111 coronavirus advice webpage for guidance and advice. If you wish to seek medical assistance for anything else, please visit NHS 111 online.
When will you confirm the programme venue?
Most programmes take place in our Simon Sainsbury Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School, but occasionally we use other programme venues in central Cambridge. Your programme manager will confirm the programme venue several weeks in advance of the programme start date. However to comply with UK Government and University of Cambridge guidance relating to COVID-19 we may need to change a venue at short notice to ensure that teaching rooms and catering facilities are suitable for social distancing and other requirements and we will inform you of these changes as early as we can. Please note that entry to programme venues will be restricted to programme participants only.
What will a typical class size be?
Whilst operating under the restrictions of COVID-19, our class sizes may need to be altered to comply with applicable social distancing guidelines and ensure that necessary cleaning and other precautions can take place during classes and refreshment breaks.
What about cancellation terms for open programmes booked during COVID-19 restrictions?
We understand that it may become difficult for you to travel to Cambridge if local or national restrictions prevent you from doing so. For instance, if you are travelling from overseas and the UK Government introduces restrictions on travel due to the COVID-19 outbreak or if you are travelling within the UK but are under a specific lockdown. In this instance, we ask that you contact us immediately in writing – [email protected]. You will be able to transfer free of charge to a later programme at the same price or cancel your participation in the programme and receive a refund of the programme fees.
All our other Terms & Conditions remain unchanged. Please see our full Terms & Conditions for Self-funded Applicants or Terms & Conditions for Organisation-funded Applicants (depending on your status), which contain other important information.
What happens if you cannot run a programme?
If we foresee any issues that will prevent us from running a programme, such as local or national lockdown or faculty sickness, we reserve the right to cancel the programme and will inform you immediately. We may also offer you the opportunity to attend the programme in a Live Online format, if such format is available.
In this event we will, at your choice, either refund the programme fees or transfer your place to a future suitable programme, however we take no responsibility for any travel, accommodation or other fees you may incur as a result of this cancellation. We recommend that participants consider taking out a travel insurance policy, which may provide cover in the event of cancellation.
What if I do not show up to class?
Please contact us should you foresee any problems attending a programme or parts of a programme that you have booked. If you do not show up to class or withdraw from the programme and you have not been in touch with us then our standard Terms & Conditions for Self-funded Applicants or Terms & Conditions for Organisation-funded Applicants (depending on your status) will apply.
What if I am travelling from overseas?
If you are traveling from overseas, please see the UK Government’s latest travel advice on www.gov.uk/coronavirus and in particular www.gov.uk/uk-border-control.
There may be quarantine restrictions in place and these restrictions may change. Please also check directly with the relevant embassy in your home country to determine whether you need an entry visa for the UK.
