On Wednesday, 21 October the Executive Committee of the College’s Board of Governors met and voted on the details surrounding the immediate future of teaching on the Newbold campus.
The Executive Committee voted that:
• The English Language Centre will cease to operate at the end of the current semester, in December 2020.
• Business and Humanities courses will cease to operate at the end of the academic year, in May 2021. The College and its Governors are working with Andrews University, Washington Adventist University and appropriate UK universities to ensure that all students will be able to complete their studies without being disadvantaged academically or financially.

Spring Semester (January 2021): COVID-19 and online teaching
At the same meeting, given the ongoing and potentially worsening situation both in the UK and further afield caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it was voted to endorse the College’s decision that it is in the best interests of staff and students that Newbold continue to deliver online learning and teaching at least until the end of the academic year in May 2021.
Newbold staff are working with affected students to determine the immediate implications of these decisions.
