Students are required to meet us at pre-designated meeting points in London. Students will be required to purchase an Oyster travel card for all travel whilst with us which can be organised prior to travel or will be done with the team upon arrival.

Food & Drink

Students are provided with a continental breakfast each morning before heading out for the day. Individual items vary depending on the accommodation but students can expect some of the following; toast, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, butter, jam and other spreads, juice, tea and coffee.

Dinner is included every night during students’ time with us. Where we eat will vary; sometimes we will eat out at a nearby restaurant, have food prepared at our accommodation, or you may be given a cash allowance and choose your own dinner with a group of fellow students. You will dine on a range of different cuisines, but regardless of where we go there will always be an option that fits students’ dietary requirements.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Whilst learning is our main focus, we also want to ensure students make the most of their time in London and leave with new friends from all over the world!

Our team arrange great social activities for some of the evenings the students are with us. Some of these take place in our accommodation to help break the ice at the beginning of the week, but we also organise some fantastic experiences around the city, which might include;

  • Visits to some of London’s most famous sites
  • Quizzes
  • An evening at Covent Garden
