We are located in Chester, a uniquely beautiful, historic English city. Chester is the perfect size for our students, big enough to be lively with lots to see and do, yet small enough to be welcoming, friendly and safe. Our students find Chester a fascinating and delightful place to study. This is a city where the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain is opposite one of the coolest nightclubs in the region. You can find many fashionable boutiques, cafes, restaurants and bars in historic medieval buildings. It is busy and prosperous university city that welcomes and charms millions of tourists every year . We are very close to beautiful countryside (North Wales and The Lake District) as well as larger cities (Liverpool and Manchester). We are also just 2 hours by train from London.
Our Student Services team provide an excellent accommodation and welfare service (homestay and residence) as well as many opportunities for an interesting and active social life. Our excursions and activities are designed to enhance your learning of English while you learn about British life with new friends from all over the world.
