Find all the answers of how the virus situation is affecting our school.
China is dealing with the virus situation everyday and is trying to reduce the cases as much as they can. The school area is very safe and we haven’t have corona virus cases around here. There were though a few cases in the nearby cities a few months ago, but as the school is located in the countryside we don’t have any cases and we are totally safe.
THE SCHOOL is ACCEPTING NEW students?
No. Because of the current virus situation around the world we are unable to accept international students at this special moment. We don’t know, when the Chinese government will remove or change these new regulations and restrictions that are affecting all the schools and institutions that have international students.
CAN I STILL APPLY and reserve my place?
YES. You can fill the application form and pay the application fee, but have in mind that your date of arrival will be uncertain. You can apply today and reserve your place for the next few months or next year. Your application and payment doesn’t expire. The application fee is a lifetime payment.
WHEN THE NEW STUDENTS can come again to the school?
We don’t have an exact answer for this questions, but we hope that this situation gets better as soon as possible, so we can welcome again new students. This really doesn’t depend on us. We are under the regulations of the Chinese government, so until the virus situation won’t get better, the Chinese government won’t change their regulations. So we need to wait.
I REALLY WANT TO COME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE:
If you really want to come, please contact the Chinese embassy of your country, when the virus situation is more under control and ask them if they are issuing tourist visas or short term students visas at this moment. If they are granting visas, you can start organizing your trip to our school. Also check if there are flight tickets available and on your budget to China, because the flight tickets are getting very expensive during this special times.
Also be aware that if you decide to come to China, when the virus is not 100% under control, you probably need to do 14 days quarantine in the city that you landed in China. Depending of that city and the hotel options that they give you, you will need to have a budget of around $40 to $80 US dollars a day for your next 14 days before coming to our school.
If you are willing to assume all these extra costs and the Chinese embassy or your country is issuing visas, you are welcome to apply to our school and we will send you the invitation letter to help you to get your Chinese visa.
Is the SCHOOL OPEN or CLOSED at this moment?
The school is OPEN and we keep going with our regular training schedule. At the moment we have 4 foreign students following our training program and at the same time we have a few Chinese students training with us.
We are not planning to close the school in any moment, we are just waiting that the situation gets better so we can welcome again new students.
I’M ALREADY IN CHINA, can I come to your school?
Yes, if you are in China more than 3 weeks you are welcome to apply and come to our school.
WHAT THE SCHOOL IS DOING TO FACE this situation:
