Experience school life in the UK
This course gives students an opportunity to experience the British education system and life within a boarding school in the UK. Students can join Abbey College for two weeks or longer to study a range of academic subjects in line with British curricula. Alongside other academic subjects English language lessons are provided.
Each student’s timetable will be tailored to suit their academic needs. Weekly teachers’ meetings enable us to monitor the progress of every student and to decide whether a change of level is necessary. The college can provide preparation for students wishing to take exams, such as IELTS or Cambridge, and can assist students with booking their tests.
Students will be mixed in classes with students on academic courses and follow the same activity and excursion plan offered to academic students. Homework is set during weekdays for evening study. All students are encouraged to make full use of college facilities, including for sports and activities, and to mix with our other students.
All students receive an Abbey College certificate and report at the end of the course. Many countries will give full credit to students studying this course when they return home and re-join their own educational system.
This course is available for students with at least a pre-intermediate level of English.
