FIE provides immersive study abroad programs in London, Dublin, and Amman

Our Staff: April 2020 Update

FIE SGLC 2019 211 SQUARE

From 6th April 2020, some FIE staff will be on extended leave ("furlough") until the end of May 2020. Please see a message about FIE's continued support for students and partners during this time from John M. Pearson our Senior Vice President, Operations.

 

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Like fellow international educators in our field who are also severely impacted by the current landscape, FIE is committed to weathering this storm as a team.
 
Due to the travel restrictions currently in place, we are temporarily reducing our operations and activity in London in areas where it is not currently needed and placing a number of our team on a temporary leave of absence (‘furlough’) from 6th April 2020 until the end of May 2020.
 
FIE's most important asset is its people and the aim of these temporary measures is to retain all of our warm and professional staff, who together, make FIE such a trustworthy and knowledgeable provider.

Rest assured, all emails and communications to furloughed staff will be forwarded to FIE staff who will still continue to work as normal. Your usual FIE contacts may be on extended leave, but please find below a list of key contacts that will be available to assist you for current and upcoming programs:
