Future Students

Update Friday 8 January 2021

On Monday 4 January, further COVID-19 restrictions were announced across England, Wales, and Scotland. These restrictions include the move to online teaching for all schools, colleges, and universities.

BCUIC is fully prepared to deliver courses online until at least mid-February (in line with Government guidance). Lecturers and support staff are already putting in place plans to move teaching fully online, with as little disruption to study as possible. Student courses and assessments have already been adapted for the online environment.

New students in the UK, or in transit, are strongly encouraged to contact BCUIC as soon as possible for support and guidance. This page will be updated as soon as possible with further information for January 2021 students. 

Latest Government information can be found below and should be revisited regularly:
