Alongside a student’s chosen pathway, they study a dynamic English language programme which teaches them to write analytically, structure arguments and gain a better command of writing and speaking English, which is essential for entrance to UK universities.

Our first-rate English team also challenge students to engage in lively discussions while exploring poetry, fiction and drama.

Students will learn in small, informal study groups which provide an enriching learning experience and encourage high level critical thinking and debate.

We provide a range of interactive workshops and guest speakers who are leading industry professionals. They enhance the experience by providing a real world perspective for our students.

Our carefully selected, subject-specific excursions allow students to explore our vibrant and cosmopolitan city, while learning more about their chosen field.

With fellow classmates from around the world, we encourage students to develop their cultural and historical understanding of the UK through other fun excursions such as a West End theatre show and visits to the Royal Observatory and Buckingham Palace.
