Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by Oxford International Education

We have developed clear behavioral guidelines for all that work and study with us at Oxford International North America, as well as student and homestay host quarantine plans, to ensure that all parties feel safe, comfortable, and confident in our ability to operate under the new restart guidelines. This Restart Plan takes into account the guidelines outlined by all of the relevant provincial and state governments in Canada and California. Measures that we have introduced include:
- reduced class sizes
- extensive hygiene and cleaning routines
- staggered lesson start, end, and break times
- Reconfiguring classroom and office set ups.
- staff training to ensure close monitoring and enforcement of social distancing
All International Students arriving in Vancouver will need to complete a 14-day self-quarantine.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Students must not miss any classes even they are in Vancouver. Because they can practice English in the streets but they learn English in a classroom.
Other comments: Suggestion: Could it be possible to open Courses of Canadian Culture every month? So students can practice pronunciation, besides learning grammar and vocabulary. This is because most older people have 2 or 3 week vacation a year.
