For students aged 16+
This course offers older teenagers and young adults aged 16+ a unique opportunity to join a residential and all-inclusive course.
The Eastbourne Centre is situated directly on the seafront and only a few minutes walk away from the main town centre, with its theatres, museums, art galleries, nightclubs, cafes, restaurants and good selection of indoor and outdoor shopping. This Conference and Learning Centre (would be equivalent to at least a 4* hotel) is in a sophisticated and luxurious setting and will appeal to mature and independent students who are looking for a more advanced and intensive English course that offers challenge and stimulation.
Eastbourne has been awarded many accolades over the last few years, including "The Most Welcoming Town in Britain" and "The Sunshine Coast". We have chosen the Eastbourne Centre in response to student feedback, which allows us to offer a unique combination, of learning, luxury and an unrivalled location on the seafront.
We offer 4 levels of English from intermediate to proficiency. There are 20 hours of English tuition per week. Lessons on one afternoon per week are sometimes taken away from the centre to enhance learning in the classroom. Small classes with a maximum number of 14 students per class. IELTS Exam course is also available.
Activities and Excursions
Two full day excursions (including all entry fees) twice a week, usually every Wednesday and Sunday. A trip to London is always included. A varied Sports and Social programme is on offer during the afternoons and evenings for students. It is also possible to book specialist coaching in certain sports. We recognise that the 16+ age group appreciates flexibility and more independence and students will have the freedom to explore Eastbourne and surrounding areas with friends in their leisure time. Some of these outings could be unsupervised (parental permission is required for this if a student is under the age of 18).
Our professional and dedicated staff, many of whom return year after year, are chosen for their experience with older students and they ensure an exciting but safe environment. Students will be accommodated in luxurious twin-bedded rooms with beautiful en-suite bathrooms (single rooms may be available on request for an additional supplement). All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, a flat screen LCD freeview TV, air-conditioning, hairdryer, ironing station, telephone and safety deposit box for valuables. There is a choice of food at mealtimes, including a vegetarian option. Our staff will be resident at the Eastbourne Centre. They will eat meals with the students and share much of their activity and leisure time. Host family courses also available.
We aim to provide a memorable experience for our students, where they can make friends from all over the world while developing their English language skills and having fun. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful centre.
