Frequently Asked Questions

1 - What is the minimum age?

The adult study abroad programs cater for students aged 18 and over, although some schools allow 16 and 17 year old students to participate if staying with a guardian or host family and have parental permission. Children under 18 are catered for if travelling with a parent or guardian.

2 - When should I arrive and depart?

Most programs begin on a Monday and finish on a Friday. Arrival to accommodation, in most cases, is Sunday to Saturday. Additional nights accommodation can be specially arranged with a corresponding additional fee.

3 - Are flights included?

5 - Courses

All of our courses take place in officially accredited language schools or universities. Courses are offered in almost all English speaking countries. Immersion is the key! The hardest part for you will be deciding which course is for you. If you can’t find the course you are looking for, please contact us. We can find a course to suit your needs.

6 - What is my English level?

Each language centre has between 6 and 10 levels ranging from beginner/elementary through to advanced/proficient. On arrivial, students are given a test to determine their level and are subsequently placed in the correct class according to their abilities. Some schools have online tests available which allows the students to go straight to class on the first Monday morning.

7 - What about accommodation?

Various options are available to students.
Host families are carefully chosen and are a good way to completely immerse yourself into an Anglo-Saxon culture. Sometimes there is more than one student staying with a host family, but the other student will never be of the same native language.

Residences and shared apartments lend to a very social experience.

Hotels are convenient and are great for shorter courses.

All options have been visited by school staff and meet various requirements set by the school.

***Accommodation is not compulsory. You can sign up for courses without accommodation or you can sign up for a course with some accommodation and later when you are settled and familiar with your surroundings you can look locally.

8 - Will I receive a certificate at the end?

Certificates are provided on completion of your course (subject to attendance). The certificate provides details of the school, duration of the course and the level completed.

9 - Are airport transfers available?

Yes, however they are not included in the course price. Students will need to provide details of the arrival location, time, airline and flight number at least one week prior to guarantee the service availability.

10 - Do I need insurance?

Students of European Union origin travelling to another EU country do not require health insurance to access the Public Health System in that country. However, it is recommended that the student obtain a Tarjeta de Sanidad Europeo (European Health Card).
