Student Activities, Social Life & Culture

Getting involved in British culture is an important part of learning English. That’s why we arrange a variety of activities and events. Our social programme includes things like:

  • parties
  • museums,
  • historical buildings,
  • club nights,
  • attractions
  • cultural events
  • weekend excursions outside of London.

We encourage all our students to take part because it’s an opportunity to improve your language skills, have fun and make the most of London. Many of the activities are free of charge and most trips are accompanied by a member of the teaching staff so you never get lost. To see what’s on this week’s social programme see below.

Student Welfare

Our learners (16+) are treated as adults and are expected to look after themselves. However, we recognise that the experience of living and studying independently in another country can be challenging, and we aim to provide plenty of help and support. In addition to the initial feedback session in the first week, all our students have a tutorial with a teacher every six weeks to help with academic or general welfare. The Welfare Officer, Accommodation Officer, Social Programme Organiser, Director of Studies and College Manager are all available to help with any difficulties you may have or to give advice to make your stay with us as comfortable, enjoyable and productive as possible. The door is always open and we are here to help. There is also a 24-hour helpline for emergencies.

Student Support

We treat all our students as adults; it won’t be like being at school! However, if there’s ever a problem we will be on hand to help. Your safety and happiness during your time with us is a priority. Think of us as your London family.
