Student demonstrations – 9th November, Central London

Reports in the press suggest there are planned student protests in varying parts of London tomorrow (Wednesday 9th November). The protests are expected to begin at approximately 12 noon and last until 8pm – details of the routes identified by the Met Police are included below.  Temporary and fixed road closures around the routes are expected but we do not expect significant disruption to our business.

Paramount is the safety of our staff, students and visitors. BPP will therefore be monitoring the situation and if it is likely that a centre or office will be directly impacted, Operations managers and Centre Managing Directors and/or customer services will take action locally to inform staff and students of closure or other alternative plans. Please note the customer services team will be issuing a request to students to carry ID with them tomorrow for building access.
