Central England

Why study English in Central England?

Positioned in the middle of the country, Central England offers the very best of locations. The towns and cities are small, so they become familiar. The people are friendly. And there are not too many international students, so you have every opportunity to speak English with English people.

Students often return year after year for English courses at Central England institutions, bringing their family and friends along. If you choose the region as your place to study, you might see why.

Studying

In Central England, there are accredited English language centres at universities, schools offering secondary education, and others that cater for young adults and professionals. There are also high quality summer courses and home tuition programmes.

From teenager to senior manager age groups, you'll definitely find a course to suit you.

City life

Central England is home to the UK's second biggest city, Birmingham, which has developed a thriving social, arts and culture scene.

The region stretches east from the border of Wales to include Nottingham, Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon, the university town of Cambridge, the industrial cities of Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford, and beautiful towns and cities like Warwick, Shrewsbury, Worcester, Cheltenham and Malvern.

Exploring

London, Oxford, Bath, Chester and Edinburgh all lie within easy reach for a weekend visit. But, some of England's real gems can be found in the region. As well as some pretty towns and cities, there are lovely villages and waterways (the Norfolk Broads) to the east.

Central England is quite undiscovered by overseas visitors, and that's a big part of its charm.
