Q: I am due to return in September 2021 for my next semester. What is the enrolment process? 

In line with COVID-19 safety measures, HIC is carrying out the September 2021 orientation and enrolment process fully online.

 

Instead of enrolling face-to-face, you are asked to complete an enrolment questionnaire and then submit documents via email. The online enrolment forms will be live shortly.

 

If you have any questions with regards to enrolment, please email hic.collegeservicesHIC.@hic.navitas.com.

 

Q: How will I be taught in September?

A: If you are a full HIC student (meaning that your classes are only with HIC), you will study the first three (3) weeks online. After this period we will move to blended delivery. This will mean for some modules and provided that you are in the UK you need to attend the face to face classes. For any students unable to join us in the UK due to travel restrictions you will be able to join the live online class .

 

Students who are integrated (meaning that you are studying modules with the University) are expected to be in the UK for classes.

 

Q: Will there still be exams this semester?

A: Yes. Your scheduled exams will take place via Moodle.

 

Q: How can I access my online classes?

A: The link for classes can be found on the relevant module pages on Moodle, there will be one continuous link for each module for the duration of the semester. The link is available on the information pages within each Module.

 

Q: How do I know when my class will be?

A: Your class times are published on your timetable, which you can access via Moodle. Please remember classes are UK time GMT. Class times on all links will be published in this format.

Zoom links will only be open during the hours of your class.

 

Q: Will my attendance be monitored?

A: All student attendance will continue to be monitored. Lecturers will take registers as normal during the session – the usual rules of attendance will still apply.
