Due to the current restrictions relating to COVID-19 and in line with guidance from the UK Government and the University of Cambridge we are currently unable to offer our usual full calendar of open enrolment programmes. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available. We thank our participants for their understanding and support at this time.

We have been working with our academic faculty and operations team to ensure we can continue to provide a comprehensive portfolio of programmes through 2021.
Several of our face-to-face programmes have been postponed until mid 2021 but we are committed to running some in small cohorts, here in Cambridge, before then with social distancing and other health and safety measures in place when it is safe and permitted to do so. We look forward to seeing Cambridge and our classrooms buzzing with energy and discussion again and are committed to doing so in a safe and controlled way.
We are now also offering a number of programmes in a ‘Live Online’ format which still enable you to experience the Cambridge learning, insights and peer-to-peer engagements without the need to travel .
When will Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education be planning on running face-to-face programmes again?
We plan to run a limited calendar of face-to-face open enrolment executive education programmes in accordance with UK Government and University of Cambridge guidance, currently from late May 2021.
What venue will be used?
Where possible, we plan to use rooms within Cambridge Judge Business School. However to ensure that teaching rooms and catering facilities are suitable for social distancing, we may use other University of Cambridge and College facilities or rooms in nearby hotels. We will give you as much written notice as possible by email, but will always ensure that venues are within Cambridge City centre.
What will a typical class size be?
Whilst operating under the restrictions of COVID-19, we plan to limit class sizes to a maximum of 18 participants. This is to ensure that social distancing, necessary cleaning and other precautions can take place during classes and refreshment breaks, while retaining diversity of peer-to-peer interaction for a rich education experience.
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 coverings. We will communicate the requirements and measures to you on the lead up to the programme and all participants and staff will be required to adhere to these.
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.
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.
If a programme cannot run on location, will it take place virtually instead?
If it is not possible to run the programme on location, then we may offer you the opportunity to attend the programme in a Live Online format instead, if such format is available. You are under no obligation to transfer to this format and will still be entitled to a full refund of the programme fees or to transfer to a later programme if you do not wish to partake virtually.
What if I become unwell before the programme, or during the programme?
Please see the “What if I am travelling from overseas?” below.
If you are feeling unwell with any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not travel to Cambridge 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 – [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.
What if I do not show up to class?
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.
