The health, safety and security of our students and staff is our first priority. At LIYSF we have a rigorous and independently verified safety assessment protocol.
Safety is of paramount importance at LIYSF. We work closely with our suppliers to maintain and improve safety standards wherever possible. Through our assessment process and ‘TravelSafe’ safety management programme, we actively seek good practice in health and safety and we do our best to ensure that our event is as safe and trouble-free as we can make it.
We are planning on the 63rd LIYSF taking place from 27th July to 10th August 2022 in-person and online.
Please check this page for updates for the latest information, as this will be updated regularly. As well as safety measures we will be taking for the safe operation of LIYSF this year, there will also be extra requirements for our attending students.
