Q: Is the January 2021 intake running?

A: Yes. We know that times have been uncertain and that your plans may have been delayed. We understand it has been a challenging time for those who are due to start their studies this year. We have been working hard to ensure that we can offer you a study solution that allows you to stay on track and achieve that dream UK degree.


Q: I want to apply for January, is it possible?

A: Yes, please visit our apply today page and submit all the documents (passport/academic qualification/English qualification etc). Once you submit the application, the HIC admission team will get in touch with you.


Q: What is blended learning?

A: A style of education in which students learn via a combination of teaching methods; traditional face-to-face teaching on campus, as well as online learning via a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This blended learning approach will enable social distancing and ensure you have a safe and comfortable environment in which to learn.


You will still have access to facilities on campus, but this may feel a little different with social distancing in place. Face-to-face meetings with student and academic services teams will be available to support your arrival in the UK, and ensure you are settling in and progressing in your studies.


Q: What does online learning look like?

A: style of education in which students learn online from the comfort of home. You are able to keep your studies on track and not waste precious time.


If the UK Visa Application Centre (VAC) is not open in your country in time, then you will study via online learning until you are able to travel. Classes will be available via a tailored Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and we will ensure you have live engagement with academics and fellow students - you will feel part of a learning community.


There will be student support services available online, as well as extra-curricular quizzes and activities.


When appropriate for you to apply for your visa and travel to the UK, we’ll support you with preparation and transition.


Q: When I travel to the UK, will I need to go into quarantine?

To keep the number of transmissions in the UK as low as possible, and to protect UK residents and international students in the UK, international arrivals (except those exempt) are currently required to self-isolate in their accommodation on arrival.

The latest UK Government quarantine information is available here.


Q: I have accepted my place for January 2021 and want to know the enrolment process?

In line with COVID-19 safety measures, HIC is carrying out the January 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. Please visit the relevant section below for pre-enrolment instructions and further orientation information:

Q: How will I be assessed in the January 2021 semester?
