Our group programmes are an increasingly popular way for foreign students to learn English at the Abbey College as they enable students either from the same school or the same country, to travel and stay together as a group in the UK. In this way they gain all the benefits of being with friends and a group leader whilst mixing with our many different nationalities on campus.

Each of our group programmes can be tailor-made for each group, depending on what they wish to focus on, whether it is particular sports and excursions or specific academic subjects. Groups of all sizes are welcome at any time apart from Christmas, and can stay for any length of time to suit them.


Students may be mixed in classes with students studying academic courses. Homework is set during weekdays for evening study.

Please contact us with details of your requirements and we would be happy to design a programme for you.
