Summary of Les Roches Covid-19 safety protocols

 

Your key questions answered

 

1.  Will I have to quarantine on arrival to Switzerland?

From the start of the pandemic, Switzerland has worked hard to limit the health risks to everyone living in the country, including our students. These efforts continue today, and they include requiring proof of a negative PCR Covid test taken a maximum of 72 hours before your arrival by air.

In addition, students entering Switzerland from certain countries and areas will have to go into quarantine for ten days. The most up- to-date official information on quarantine and entry restrictions can be found here. If students have travelled from – or been in – one of the countries with entry restrictions in the previous 14 days before traveling, our teams will be on-hand to guide them upon arrival, including the provision of detailed quarantine instructions. Our Health Advisors are available to answer any specific questions relating to students’ personal medical situations, please email: welfareinfo@lesroches.edu

If you are required to quarantine on arrival, we recommend that you arrive 11 days before the official check in date of your program in order to complete your quarantine. A full board accommodation service will be provided at the Les Roches campus in Crans-Montana (with a fixed rate of CHF100 per night). Alternatively, you can select a hotel or private accommodation for your quarantine period.

For all non-quarantining students who arrive within (or after) the official arrivals window, no additional accommodation charges will apply.

Should your travel arrangements mean you are self-quarantining after the start of the semester, you will be able to attend classes remotely from your room, joining the live class broadcasts with your faculty and peers.

2. What arrivals support arrangements are available for new students for the September 2021 intake?

During official arrival days, we will be offering a complimentary airport welcome and transfer from Geneva Airport to campus.

Outside of the official arrival dates, you will be required to travel independently at your own expense. However, we can put you in touch with our recommended transfer provider, who will be happy to help.

3. What if I cannot start my Bachelor’s degree on campus in September, due to travel restrictions?

Our bespoke remote learning platform, Les Roches Connect, lets you begin your Bachelor studies at home. You have the option to study remotely for the first 10 weeks of the semester, then join us on campus, or to complete the entire 20-week semester remotely. In both cases you will achieve the same learning outcomes as a semester studied fully on campus. Les Roches Connect is tailor-made for learning hospitality’s practical arts. It offers a mixture of live or on-demand classes and demonstrations, one-to-one coaching and mentoring, plus expert guest lectures and much more.

We are so confident in the quality of Les Roches Connect that we offer a satisfaction guarantee: you can trial the platform for up to four weeks and defer without extra charge to the next on-campus BBA1 semester if you are not satisfied with the remote learning experience. To qualify for this guarantee you must have paid your tuition fees before the start date of the program.

4. What remote learning arrangements are available for Postgraduate students?

We now offer an ‘a la carte’ menu of study options for Postgraduate students. You can join us on campus for your complete program; you can study 100% remotely; or you can opt for a blended approach which allows you to begin your studies at home then continue on campus when you are ready.

Each remote study package comes with a satisfaction guarantee: should you try it and decide you’d prefer to wait for a fully face-to-face experience, you can defer to the next on-campus intake without extra charge. This guarantee is for a trial period of up to 4 weeks and to qualify for it you must have paid your tuition fees before the start date of the program.

5. What should I do if my government has not yet reopened airports/borders?

We now offer exceptional levels of flexibility to allow you to continue your education whether you are at undergraduate or graduate level. For example, we have adjusted our late arrival policy to allow more time to join us on campus.

For Postgraduate students

All our Postgraduate programs can now be studied 100% on campus, 100% remotely or started remotely before later switching to campus at a time of your choosing, with seamless integration of your curriculum. You can trial the remote learning option for up to four weeks then defer to the next face-to-face program intake at no extra charge, should you be unhappy with the experience.

For Bachelor’s students

If you have chosen to start your Bachelor’s semester on campus, you must begin your program within four weeks of its start date so as not to fall behind in your studies. If you are studying BBA1 remotely via Les Roches Connect (see question 3) you must commence your studies as soon as the platform goes live.

For all students

If you have not been able to make plans to travel to campus, you are not required to pay the accommodation and board fees upfront; instead we will invoice you for the period you are on-campus if you already plan to study remotely beyond the first four weeks of the semester.

6. My local English language testing center is currently closed – what are my options?

The Swiss authorities have indicated that they will accept our validation of your English level. As a result, we have set up an alternative testing plan.
The three additional English language tests that will be accepted, for the Spring 2021 intake only, are:

  • IELTS Indicator (you sit the test independently and provide us with your official results)
  • Oxford Placement Test (this test is bookable via our International Enrolment team and is included as part of your application fee)
  • Language Cert (you sit the test independently and then provide us with your official results)

The English language level we require remains the same and your English skills must be strong enough to study your chosen program successfully.

7. What happens if I don’t graduate in time to arrive for the start date?

If you are unable to complete your last year at senior high school or your last year at University due to the impact of coronavirus, you can still start your Les Roches program under the following conditions:

  • Your registration remains conditional until your admissions file is complete.
  • For students registered onto the Undergraduate program (BBA): you need to provide the final transcripts before arrival on campus – the actual High School Diploma, if not available before arrival, you are to provide an official copy to the Registrar ideally during BBA1 but by the latest before the start of BBA3.
  • For students registered onto the Postgraduate programs: you need to provide the final University transcripts before arrival on campus and an attestation from the University that you have met all the criteria for graduation – the actual official Bachelor Degree, if not available before arrival, you are to provide an official copy to the Registrar by the latest the end of semester 1.
  • If you fail to obtain your High School qualification, you would be able to finish BBA1 but not allowed to progress onto an internship and no refund claim is possible on any fees paid.
8. What reassurance can I get about health and safety on campus?

Your safety on campus is our number one priority. We have introduced key precautionary measures in readiness for your arrival, which align with, or go beyond, the advice of Swiss health authorities. This includes ongoing temperature checks using thermal cameras, hand sanitizers and social distancing measures in classrooms and in on-campus restaurants, and reinforced sanitary protocols across campus.

Please note that we are also making single rooms available on all campuses for students who require them. However, we have a finite number of these rooms available, so current students are recommended to confirm their preference without delay. Equally, we strongly advise prospective students to complete your application and confirm your single room preference as soon as possible.
For more details on all our campus safety measures, see our Health & Safety fact sheet and campus video.

9. What are my options if I wish to have a Covid-19 test?

Testing for Covid-19 is widely available in Switzerland, with a number of facilities in the immediate vicinity of the campus, and thus easily accessible for students.

There are at least 11 testing centers within a 15-minute drive, including a dedicated test center, a laboratory and general practitioners.

Self-tests are available at pharmacies (5 tests every 30 days free of charge). The pharmacy will bill the tests you obtain direct to your health insurer.

PCR tests are free of charge if due to symptoms, etc.; fees not covered for travel purposes only.

10. What is the current situation with internships?

The global hospitality industry is receiving a literal shot in the arm from the accelerated rollout of Covid-19 vaccines. This is leading to an improving picture for employment in the industry, including the professional internships that are such valuable elements of our academic programs.

Our Career Services team will be on hand to fully support your internship search. The department is constantly in touch with industry representatives worldwide, in order to make you aware of the latest vacancies.

We have also built-in more flexibility to our internship arrangements:

For Bachelor’s students

Should you be unable to find and secure an internship for September 2021, you can defer your internship to later in your program and progress to semester 3 studies instead.

For Postgraduate students

Your placement can begin as soon as you have completed your second semester exams and you will have a two-year window in which to complete your internship. Valid positions for the placement semester will now include: internships, a management training position and full-time employment.

For all students

All students on every program will benefit from an intensive Career Development Program adapted to the level of studies, together with personalized support services (onsite and online) and workshops.

Les Roches Connect & Recruit, our Career Day taking place every semester, was held virtually during the current pandemic, to ensure that even in this special time, when companies cannot travel to campus easily, you can still connect safely with a wide variety of industry leaders and recruiters.

Sanitas insurance is covering the treatment for Covid-19 as a regular illness. Students will receive the necessary treatments under this coverage.
