The opening dates above are projected dates and are subject to change based on any changes in local regulation. The safety of our students and staff is our priority, while delivering our strong academic and language progression-centric approach both in the classroom and online.

We are continually monitoring the situation and consulting with the national government guidelines in all our school destinations. We have a protocol in place should any of our students or school team develop symptoms which involves liaison with local health authorities which has been in place for some time and fully communicated to all school stakeholders.

EC takes the safety of its students and staff very seriously. We work hard to ensure classes take place in a safe and secure environment. 

We will continue to update our in-house students with any further developments.
If any students have immediate questions or concerns, they are encouraged to speak to their school's Centre Manager/Director.
