Cambridge views

Last summer was truly memorable and it was our pleasure and privilege to have such an ambitious and engaging international community of students with us in Cambridge. Feedback has been incredibly positive and we are already excited about welcoming new and returning students to Cambridge next summer. 

Since our first summer in 2005, the health and safety of our students has always been our number one priority. We fully appreciate that you may have particular concerns and questions as the situation worldwide continues to evolve in relation to Covid-19. Rest assured, we are here to help and we wish to work with all our families and groups to keep lines of communication open over the coming months. We will also be keeping this page under review as we look towards summer 2023, but please do get in touch if you have any specific questions and we would be delighted to help.

Our Refund Promise

  • For the summer, we will offer a full refund (including the usually non-refundable deposit) if UK government legislation obliges us to cancel all of our Cambridge programs.
  • In the event that government restrictions due to Covid-19 prevent your attendance on our summer programs (e.g. your country’s government or the UK government imposes a travel ban, or you are unable to secure a visa due to Covid-19 restrictions), we will offer you a range of flexible options:
    • Switch your program: We would work with you to find dates that are more suitable.
    • Switch to an online course: Take one of our highly rated, personalised one-to-one academic courses tailored to your needs. Visit for more information.
    • Receive a refund: In the extraordinary circumstances outlined above, we will allow you to cancel and receive a refund of your balance, upon informing us by email and presenting documents verifying the reason for your cancellation. Please see the Force Majeure section in clause 23 of our Terms & Conditions for more information.

If UK government legislation does not prevent us from running the program, then we will proceed as planned with our summer programs. Any participants choosing to cancel their place will be allowed to do so in line with our normal cancellation policy as outlined in our Terms & Conditions.

As with every summer, we recommend all families take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance prior to the program. Links to our travel insurance affiliates will be available via your online account. Many insurers do offer cover for coronavirus-related events, e.g. trip cancellation if you are unable to travel due to a positive covid test result/a requirement to self isolate, and cover for medical expenses/the cost of an extended stay if you contract Covid-19 while travelling.  We recommend that you look for a suitable insurance policy covering such coronavirus-related eventualities.

Our Covid-19 Safety Plan

‘Participant welfare is paramount to the Provider. The ratio of staff to participant numbers is generous for example, in some lessons, two teachers are provided, or additional supervisors allocated, to ensure learning and safety are optimised.’ British Accreditation Council, Reach Cambridge inspection report

The health and safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to us. We have consistently met and exceeded rigorous standards in Student Welfare and Safety as part of our accreditation from the British Accreditation Council (BAC). Furthermore, our welfare processes and contingency plans have been honed over the many years we have been running our programs, as we have dealt with incidents both large and small that have demanded robust and clear action plans.

In recent summers we have been careful to research, create and implement a robust Covid-19 policy, with clear guidelines and a risk assessment which was enforced across the board. We are confident we can provide a safe, supportive and enjoyable experience for all involved.

We have received the ‘Good to Go’ industry mark to reassure our customers that our business adheres to government and public health guidance. In addition, we have received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s ‘Safe Travels’ stamp, enabling travellers to recognise destinations that have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols.

Our mission has always been about bringing together bright and talented young people from around the world in a shared endeavour to prepare for their future – and that mission feels more important now than ever. We are confident that we will be able to offer a safe and supportive environment that still includes all of the joys of a truly international, engaging and life-changing Reach Cambridge program.
