The campus is in the middle of the hip and creative Shoreditch area, just around the corner from the bustling City of London area. Between cultural visits to the most important city landmarks (Westminster, Tower Bridge, Oxford Street, The London Eye & Madame Tussauds) along with creative activities or a range of sports, this programme is an absolute must for anyone wishing to discover London in a safe and secure environment.
Classes take place at Hackney Community College in the vibrant Shoreditch district, just a few metro stops away from Covent Garden and Oxford Circus.
20 lessons of 45 minutes, making a total of 15 hours per week.
Lessons are held either in the morning or afternoon and alternate with the activity programme. All course materials are included and given to the students on their first day of class.
