Future Student Updates (COVID-19)

New Students - Orientation and Enrolment


In line with COVID-19 safety measures, HIC is carrying out the January 2022 orientation and enrolment process online.

Instead of enrolling face-to-face, you are asked to complete an online enrolment questionnaire and submit documents via email. You will also be invited to attend some online/face to face induction events.

  • Please complete and submit the online enrolment questionnaire for new students.
  • Please ensure you upload any additional documents through the enrolment questionnaire.
  • You do not have to wait for the week of enrolment to complete the questionnaire.

The enrolment dates are as follows:

  • Enrolment start date for new students – 10th January 2022
  • Classes start date for all students – 24th January 2022

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 and to receive a zoom appointment.

As part of orientation HIC will also be carrying out several online inductions and activities. Students will receive an orientation timetable once 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). Students will also register with the University of Hertfordshire (UH) to receive their UH ID card and access to Studynet (UH Student Portal).

For those students studying an HIC programme (Foundation, 1st year Business, Pre-Masters or IEL programme)- all teaching will be conducted online from the 24th January 2022 until the 11th February 2022. Then from the 14th of February 2022, we are aiming to run some classes face to face (hybrid approach) – providing Government guidelines allow us to do so.

All students are expected to come to the UK to study. They must attend the face to face classes that are provided. This is a UKVI and College requirement. As a result, it is vital that students live within a 30 minute distance to the College.

Students must contact HIC if they experience any travel restrictions due to COVID 19.

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 on this website ). This will enable students to arrive in the UK in sufficient time to self-isolate (if applicable) first before the face to face classes start.

Please be aware that if you are travelling to the UK you will need to do a PCR test before travelling and upon arrival in the UK. The rules are different depending on where you are travelling from and if you are vaccinated or not. Please refer to the website for more information this website.  If you provide a positive result on day 2 of arrival, you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. Firstly, you will need to book the COVID test to take in your home country and then pre book the PCR test before you travel to the UK. Please find the list of testing providers.

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