News about Coronavirus (COVID-19) is everywhere and our crisis management team continues to monitor the situation by the hour in all of our locations abroad, as well as here in the US. We are carefully following the recommendations of the CDC, the State Department, the WHO, local governments, and, of course, our partner colleges and universities.
Over the past four weeks we have suspended all of our spring programs; our students’ and our staff’s health and safety are our main priorities. All developments are communicated daily to our network of university partners including status on a) working to bring all students home, b) ensuring appropriate academic courses can continue online, and c) ensuring students have all other support they may need to make the transitions they are seeking to make, safely.
As of this week all of our Summer 2020 Programs have been suspended. As for the Fall 2020 Semester, we are currently operating on the assumption that the extreme measures being taken right now will be effective, and we are expecting our 2020 Fall Programs to proceed as usual. Please feel free to email us if you have questions or concerns.
Finally, it is important to address and direct the fears and concerns of your students to the proper channels for accurate information and preventative measures. For the most updated information, we are including the following links:
