Eastbourne is the perfect place to study English. Known as the sunniest place in the UK, it is a quiet and safe seaside town surrounded by beautiful countryside, with easy access to London, medieval towns and magnificent castles. You can enjoy a healthy lifestyle and explore thousands of years of culture and history.





Chester, located on the banks of the River Dee, is a fascinating city steeped in history, offering the perfect combination of tradition, culture and modernity. It is a safe, welcoming city and one of the attractions of the city are the so-called Rows, splendid arcaded half-timbered houses that today house charming little shops and boutiques. Not far from the Rows is the Storyhouse where shows ranging from classical opera to Shakespeare's plays to the works of emerging screenwriters are staged.
