The opportunity for short-stay study in the UK is increasingly popular. Thousands of students and children from across the world join us for Summer Schools to improve their English, experience our culture, explore new places and make new friends in a safe and friendly environment.
Young people ages 6-18 years old can come to Summer Schools for any period of time from a few days to 6 weeks.
These courses are managed either by independent schools or specialist companies and can be residential or non-residential. Residential courses give children the opportunity to experience life in a British boarding school and have:
- Very good quality accommodation with all meals included
- Use of excellent school facilities (eg for sport)
- At least 15 hours of English Language tuition a week
- Qualified and checked staff taking responsibility for your child’s welfare
- Activities, sports, entertainment and excursions to cities and places of interest
Academic and Specialist courses
Some Summer Schools specialise in providing tuition in other subjects. Students attend Academic courses because they want more than just English Language lessons. If they want to improve in certain subjects or they want to study more before exams, these courses are excellent and are taught by experienced staff from UK independent schools or universities. Subjects include Sciences, Maths, Languages and English.
Specialist courses are available for students and adults over 16 years old interested in areas such as Art, Media, Fashion, Dance, Drama, Jewellery and Business. They are taught by highly experienced staff in several institutions and universities and students learn in a very inter-active approach with others.
Pre-university courses introduce students aged 16+ to the academic expectations of life at a top UK university (such as Oxford and Cambridge). These outstanding courses are very popular and targeted at academic students who aspire to study at the very best UK universities.
Undergraduate and Graduate courses are available at many of the UKs top universities providing courses in Finance, Business, Media, International Relations, Politics and many other subjects.
