Current students whose programme finishes before June 30th 2022**

If you wish to complete your studies online, you must inform a student support team member (who will be in contact with you directly) of your intention to complete your programme online, otherwise you will be expected to arrive in the UK by 30 June 2022 to continue your programme.
