English with confidence: a UK ELT briefing for European agents

The webinar 

Education agents in key European markets are being invited to join our webinar to hear the latest updates from the the UK and understand how best to advise students.

When: Tuesday 14 September | 15:00 - 16:00 (UK time)

Presenters: Naadiya Rawat & Roz McGill (English UK), Liz McLaren (British Council)

Covid-19 restrictions are reducing in the UK due to a successful vaccination programme.The UK is open and international students are welcome. 

Since Monday 2 August, vaccinated adults and under 18s arriving from the EU and EFTA no longer need to quarantine on arrival in the UK. This change affects many of the main European markets for UK ELT and is a positive move for our industry.

In this online briefing, we will share the latest updates, along with valuable insights for European agents. The session will predominantly focus on:

  • The simplified visa system

  • Travel regulations and Covid-19 safety measures

  • Developments in the Accreditation UK scheme.

We are here to help ensure agents can easily access the information they need to have confidence in UK ELT, and to answer any questions.  

'Recovery can only be achieved if study abroad agents and educational counsellors have the information they need to advise students with confidence.' 

Background to this agent-facing webinar series

This is the first in series of targeted webinars that will be run through the 'English with Confidence Campaign'. 

This agile and responsive webinar series will reassure and inform agents in key markets, providing them with the market specific content they need to support the return of students to the UK ELT sector. It will remind them of the value, quality and innovation of our international education sector and reassure them about Covid-19 safety and the simplified UK visa system.
