What is the School Immersion Programme?

The School Immersion Programme offers overseas students the opportunity to learn and speak the English language whilst experiencing British school life. Students attend one of a variety of day or boarding schools and participate with other students in a daily timetable from the school curriculum. Not only do students experience local culture, but they also have the opportunity to make long term friends with British students.

These courses run for an agreed time ranging from two weeks to a whole term or even the full academic year. During this time students enrolled in a boarding school partake in organised recreational activities. Alternatively they may reside with host families where they join in meals and participate in their social activities.
