The people who live here don’t break the rules and are very polite. Every time you go inside the building you see people with masks and it is very controlled here.

December 2020


After listening to the main concerns of our students and agents, we prepared answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding COVID-19.

London Awaits

As the only year-round residential International College in London, we were determined to remain optimistic, responsible, and future-focused.

To get the inside scoop on how we've kept our students, residents and staff safe, follow our video tour inside our Kentish Town campus, built in 2019 and waiting to welcome you!



Visit England has awarded SCL International College with a certificate confirming that we are taking all possible measures to keep everyone safe.

“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

The UK Department for International Trade has also expressed their support for foreign students coming to Great Britain to study English, and we are proud to extend a warm welcome to all.

Continuing High Standards in Safety and Cleanliness

At SCL International College we remain vigilant to continued challenges and student concerns, and endeavour to make all of our facilities open to our residents and partners.

Quarantine Coverage

If a two-week quarantine is required for incoming international students, they are welcome to spend that time at our secure facilities.

Rigorous Cleaning

Our classrooms, facilities, reception and social areas are frequently deep-cleaned and sanitised.

Free Supplies

Face masks and disposable gloves are available at reception and hand sanitiser stations have been installed in or near all classrooms.

Safety Routines

All students are proactively encouraged to follow the social distancing recommendations and to regularly wash their hands.

Walking Routes

A traffic flow system is now in place to ensure smooth movement around the campuses.


By providing classroom space, accommodation, and catering all in the same building, students can live and learn under one roof. This eliminates the need to commute, reduces the risk of exposure, and gives students more free time to enjoy our facilities.

Private Rooms

Our self-contained accommodation with private kitchenettes and en-suites offer an excellent choice while the world is more mindful of reducing unnecessary contact.

Online Learning

Our high-speed Wi-Fi ensures students never lose touch with their coursework or wider social network. We’re also running Online Classes and free Online Taster sessions for our Pre-University Foundation students.

Extra Classroom Space

We have extra space available if additional classrooms or lecture halls are required due to social distancing regulations.

On-Site Catering

Our cafes and restaurants now have segregated seating plans and staggered mealtimes to follow social distancing guidelines.

Worry-Free Guarantee

For peace of mind, our flexible guarantee will give students the confidence to book without losing out if their travel plans are affected by a change in international mobility.



We have revised our cancellation policy to allow greater flexibility and to ensure you can book with confidence.

Our revised policy means that booking with us is risk-free.

The policy includes guidance for all students who have to cancel their studies due to COVID-19 restrictions.

We look forward to welcoming more students to London at our all-inclusive campuses.
