Please note: The below information is updated regularly – 10 November 2021 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 have updated 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 to help students study and intern 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, as well as 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 arrival requirements and potential quarantine. Please research and review each country’s regulations in relation to quarantine and vaccination requirements.
While the LI Coordinators will help guide students as much as possible, ultimately it is the responsibility of the student to know and comply with all regulations prior to departure and upon arrival.
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.

Please speak with your LI Coordinator should you have any queries about our COVID-19 refund schedule.
“Leaving the foggy cobbled streets for the empty quiet of the freeways, I felt affirmed by the fact that here we were, up and at ‘em early before anyone else. It’s like a game of dominoes – you nail the first push and the rest of the pieces fall seamlessly. In line with this metaphor, awaking on time and being the first to arrive on set portends a day of good old fashioned hard work.”
“Imagine your mind is a great ocean in which the crest and troughs of waves, representing fleeting thoughts, swell in and out of existence. It is your choice, should you choose to ride a particular wave, whether you will fight against it and in so doing expend your precious energy or whether you will simply let it carry you until it gently dissipates.”
