In 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union. The terms of the departure are still being discussed. There is a lot of uncertainty about Brexit and some things may change, but not us! We welcome all students here as usual.

If you come from the EU, EEA and Switzerland, you will be able to study, live and work in the UK as you do now, until 31 December 2020. Students can enter the UK with a valid passport or National ID.  After this date there might be some changes in entry requirements for EU nationals, these changes are not confirmed yet.

If you come from anywhere else in the world, don’t worry! Nothing is going to change for you.

We’ve also recently introduced arranging Travel Insurance for our students. We strongly recommend that you take out insurance for your own financial and personal security, even if you come from a European country. CELT is working in partnership with Guard.me to provide our students with a policy which has been specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are studying a language course in the UK. For more details, visit our Travel Insurance page.

We’re currently accepting students for courses in 2020 every day and look forward to welcoming everybody here in Cardiff. With our new updated Social Programme and new courses, there is so much to look forward to!

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am not from Europe. Do I have to be worried?

Not at all, nothing is going to change for you at all. You will still need your passport and apply for a visa as usual, unless you come from a country that has arranged an agreement with the UK. Best is to check here, if you’re not sure, or you can also contact us!

I am from Europe, what does it change?

Until the end of 2020, nothing will change. After that, there might be some changes. But don’t worry, we will update our website as soon as there is something set in stone.

Will I still be able to use my National ID instead of a passport to enter the UK?

Travelling with your ID card will be legal until the end of 2020 for sure.

Will I still be able to use my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

The EHIC card only offers limited medical cover – which is why private travel insurance is essential. When the UK leaves the European Union, the EHIC card may not be valid completely.

Is there a special travel insurance for students of language schools?

Yes! We work in partnership with Guard.me to provide our students with a policy specifically designed to meet your requirements whilst you are studying a language course in the UK. For more information, check our Travel Insurance page.

When will we know more about Brexit?

Brexit is on hold for the election until 13 December 2019. There is likely to be more information after that day. However, The EU’s Brexit “flextension” means Brexit Day is now 31 January 2020 or earlier if the new Government and the EU come to an agreement.
