We are pleased to confirm that Cambridge Dream’s 2020 summer programmes are scheduled to go ahead as planned on 26th July to 8th August. You can book confidently, with the assurance that our rigorously accredited summer school will provide the highest standards of care, including guaranteed single bedrooms with private bathrooms for all students who request them. The welfare of our students and staff remains our highest priority. Stringent hygiene measures are in place to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, including:
- Sanitiser stations located at key points (including entrances) around the College
- Extra cleaning of key areas such as door handles and toilets
- Extra checks to ensure a plentiful supply of soap and paper hand towels
- Signs to remind people to wash hands regularly and to use the hand sanitiser provided
Our residential Safeguarding and Welfare Manager is highly experienced in dealing with any health-related issues that students may have during their stay, and we have rapid access to local doctors, as well as Cambridge’s internationally renowned Addenbrooke’s hospital, if a student requires urgent medical attention.
We are closely monitoring expert advice from the FCO, Public Health England, the UK’s Chief Medical Officers and the World Health Organisation, as well as liaising closely with our partners in the UK and overseas. We are also observing travel-specific advice provided by the British Council, the British Educational Travel Association, and Universities UK. Our deepest sympathies go out to all those who are suffering illness, loss or separation at this time.
Our Cambridge University College considers the ‘at risk’ period will finish before the summer and expects all summer courses to proceed as planned. In the unlikely event that Cambridge Dream is forced to cancel or postpone our planned summer programmes for reasons beyond our control, for example due to UK Government regulations or international travel restrictions, we will make every effort to offer the same programmes on alternative dates and/or at a different venue. If these changes are not acceptable, a full refund of course fees will be made, as per the terms and conditions clause 7. Additional costs that may have been incurred, such as payments for visas and flights, cannot be refunded by Cambridge Dream. Please note that we strongly recommend that students should always take out suitable insurance cover in case they are unable to attend the course due to illness or for any other reason (terms and conditions clause 1). If you have any questions concerning the potential impact of coronavirus on Cambridge Dream’s summer programmes, please contact our head office.
