Please note: The below information is updated regularly – August 14, 2020 last update. We encourage you to check back for updates.
During this unprecedented time, Learn International is working closely with our university partners, students and providers on how to maneuver to adapt to COVID-19 with all programming.
We are updating our terms and conditions (refund and cancellation policies) for future study abroad travel and will remain as flexible as possible with dates and deadlines.
As the current crisis plays out it is forcing rapid changes to regulations in many countries in which Learn International provides programming. Please know and trust, that we will make every effort to continue help students study abroad and build the supports for successful experiences now and into the future.
We monitor COVID-19 regularly through the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the EDCD (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) , WHO (World Health Organization), HSE and The US Department of State – Travel Advisory and other relevant organisations.
Note that we assess the information outlined below regularly and will update it accordingly.
Students traveling to other locations, must speak with an LI Coordinator about questions related to quarantine. Please research and review each country’s regulations in relation to quarantine and vaccination requirements.
We strongly recommend that you are vaccinated prior to your study abroad programme.
While your LI Coordinator will help guide students as much as possible, ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to know the regulations prior to departure.
As with everything in life study abroad programming/travel comes with inherent risks. Here’s what we’re doing to reduce risk and make your programme as safe as we possibly can.
