Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, ICL Graduate Business School, and all other ICL Education Group schools temporarily closed their physical doors to students until Aug 30, 2020. During this time, ICL successfully developed and delivered online classes. With Auckland now in Alert Level 2, our face-to-face classes will resume as of Monday, Sep 31, 2020.

At ICL Education Group our top priority is the health and wellbeing of our students and staff. Below is the full list of Safe Studying Protocols that will be implemented on the ICL Education Group campus in order to keep our whānau safe over this challenging time.

Stay home if you feel unwell
Inform school on 09 368 4343 and call Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or your doctor immediately.

You must wear a face mask in public transport
While wearing face-covering or masks in situations other than on public transport is not mandatory, the Ministry recommends that students
bring face coverings or masks with them when attending activities on a tertiary campus, and make use of these where appropriate,
particularly where physical distancing may be difficult. In the ICL Education Centre building, we recommend students and stay wear masks in
spaces which are confined or allow a lot of mobility, such as:
• Around Reception
• In corridors
• The level 1 student lounge (except for eating)
• The breakout areas on levels 2, 3 and 4
• In the lifts and
• On the stairs

Register using NZ COVID tracer app
The QR code is available at Reception and in every level and common areas.
Instructions on how to register and use NZ COVID Tracer can be found here.

Compulsory attendance
Ensure that your teacher/lecturer has checked your attendance at every class.

Good hygiene
Good hygiene practices (hand-washing, coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow, and not touching your face when your hands are not clean) MUST be followed at all times.
