Future Student Updates (COVID-19)

New Students - Orientation during COVID-19

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:


The enrolment dates are as follows:


  • Enrolment start date for new students – 11th January 2021
  • Classes start date for all students – 25th January 2021

Please note, that once HIC receive your enrolment forms it can take up to 3 to 4 working days for the forms to be processed.


As part of orientation HIC will also be carrying out several online inductions and activities. Students will receive an orientation timetable once an enrolment has been confirmed.


HIC will also guide students on how to register with the University of Hertfordshire. Please note that HIC enrolment and UH registration are separate processes and it is vital that both are completed. Students will enrol with HIC to receive their academic timetable through Axis (HIC Student Portal www.axis.navitas.com). Students will also register with the University of Hertfordshire (UH) to receive their UH ID card and access to Studynet (UH Student Portal www.studynet.herts.ac.uk).


All teaching will be conducted online from the 25th January 2021 until 26th February 2021, then from the 1st of March 2021, we are aiming to run some classes face to face (hybrid approach) – providing Government guidelines allow us to do so.


Students who cannot join us for face to face classes will be able to continue their studies online.


It is recommended for any students joining us from overseas, to ensure that they check the latest UK Self-Isolation requirements (more information is available here www.gov.uk/uk-border-control) This will enable students to arrive in the UK in sufficient time to self-isolate first before the face to face classes start.


 *Please be aware that the face to face teaching dates could change due to the pandemic.
