Celtic English Academy Statement on Covid-19

Latest update: Friday 25th September 2020

If you are a student that is already studying at the Academy with us, or you are going to soon arrive to Cardiff to start your course, we want to update you. Probably you are watching the news in your country or native language and we want to reassure you about the situation here.
Today, Friday 25th September, the Welsh Government announced that Cardiff will be included in further lockdown measures. You might see this on the BBC news. This will happen from Sunday 27th September at 18:00 UK time. We want to explain what this means for you as a student and reassure you that it doesn’t change too much for your day-to-day life. For your information:
  • Education continues – students can still come to school and face to face classes continue at Celtic. All students must wear face coverings.
  • Essential travel in and out of the Cardiff area is permitted – if you are arriving to start your course or are departing when your course finishes this is fine.
  • Non-essential travel is not allowed – you cannot go to other places outside of Cardiff, for example on a day trip or for sightseeing.
  • You can only meet people outdoors – you cannot go into other people’s houses to socialise indoors. Friends and family cannot meet indoors
  • You can go to restaurants, pubs and cafes outdoors – if you are with other people you must keep to social distancing which is 2m in Wales
  • You cannot go to restaurants, pubs and cafes indoors – unless you are with people from your household (in your homestay, or in your residence flat bubble)
  • Shops stay open – you can go to the supermarket or essential shops in Cardiff and you must wear a mask, it is compulsory indoors
  • Wear face coverings – in any indoor public space and on public transport (bus, train, taxi, plane)
  • Wear face coverings in school –all students must wear face coverings in class and teachers also wear face shields


Local councils govern the local restrictions and the Welsh and UK government continue to monitor everything closely. Information for Wales is on the government website here.
We continue to have safe measures in place at Celtic English Academy and you can see our COVID safety video here.
If you have any questions or concerns, the Celtic team will be happy to speak with you.
You can email us at info@celticenglish.co.uk, Whatsapp us on +44 (0)7803495154 or call Reception +44 (0)2920 344805.
Take care and keep enjoying your studies whether it’s online or in-person.

Latest update: Friday 10th July 2020

  •  No 2-week quarantine for international visitors to Wales from these countries

Following the recent announcement from the UK government that there will be no 2-week quarantine for international visitors arriving in England from certain countries and the same now applies for international visitors arriving in Wales.

Currently these include mainly Europe, island nations and some countries in Asia. Visitors arriving from these countries will no longer need to isolate in quarantine for 2 weeks on arrival.

The UK and Welsh Government will continue to monitor and update the list which you can check here.

We will continue to check the list for the Middle East and Latin & Central America in the future. International visitors from any country can arrive in the UK, but if they are not on the list they have to follow a 2-week self-isolation quarantine on arrival.

Of course, if anyone experiences new symptoms with potential to be Covid-19 they will have to follow self-isolation rules, as usual. Please inform a member of Celtic staff who can support students that may be feeling unwell. We also have this guide for helping students.

We hope that this update will help Celtic students to plan their in-person courses with us in Cardiff, along with our Study with Confidence flexible booking policy (see FAQ12 below)

  • Face-to-face teaching from September 7th
  • Pre-opening to limited VIP students from August 3rd
  • Study with confidence: Zero cancellation fees

Thanks to the incredible efforts of millions of people, the world is slowly beginning to re-open, and the UK is no exception.

At Celtic English Academy, our values at this time are the same as they have always been, putting our student and staff wellbeing at the centre of all that we do.

A limited number of students will be able to study face to face from August 3rd in our exclusive pre-opening for VIP students. Please register your interest here.

We have three buildings with 22 well ventilated classes that allow our students to learn again in person, whilst staying as safe as possible.

Using guidance from English UK, the Welsh and the UK Government as well ideas as our own staff, we have been working to minimise the risks of virus transmission in our academy.

We are interested in your thoughts too, especially since together we are able to draw on the knowledge and experience of our international community. If you have any questions or suggestions, please send them to info@celticenglish.co.uk.

These last few months have put lots of things into perspective, and many people will have looked hard at what their values are and what they want for their futures.

At Celtic our values are as strong as ever. We have adapted quickly and successfully so that we can continue to help you realise your dreams as we move forward together into a changed world. This is why we launched “Study with Confidence” campaign to offer zero cancellation fees. To learn more about this, please look at FAQ 12 below.
