Cambridge is famous as a centre of learning, combining cutting-edge research with age-old tradition in one of the most beautiful cities in the UK.
Whether you or your family are planning to study English, study at a college of higher education or at one of our two universities, Cambridge is a top destination for students.
Cambridge is an excellent base for Group Study Holidays, whether the students are travelling with their school or through an agency. The city is very safe, with good public transport, though of course, the traditional way to get around is by bike. The city and its immediate surroundings have a range of activities and attractions to suit all ages and interests, and London is less than an hour away. You can see why so many groups prefer to stay in Cambridge and visit London when you know that it’s possible to go to London after morning lessons to see a show, or to make two or three visits during a week’s stay to sample different aspects of the capital’s culture
Cambridge’s academic pedigree means schools are able to provide top-quality English-language teaching, though we can’t promise that just breathing the Cambridge air will improve your students’ levels!
The two government-recognised accrediting bodies, Accreditation Body for Language Services (ABLS) and Accreditation UK (British Council) set standards for teaching, accommodation and pastoral care, and schools are regularly inspected, to ensure that standards are being met.
Accreditation by either scheme enables schools to support applications for student visitor visas.
If you are travelling with a group, having good accommodation is of paramount importance, and our schools can provide options ranging from friendly homestay families to residences, hotels and hostels.
If you are travelling with under-18s, welfare is a huge responsibility, and you can gain additional assurance that your students will be well-looked-after by choosing a school which is a TravelSafe Assured Partner.
Cambridge has well over 20 fully accredited English-language centres to choose from. Each one is regularly inspected to ensure that the teaching, resources, welfare and accommodation are among the best the UK has to offer.
Accreditation means that language students have the reassurance of knowing that whether they choose a smaller, privately-owned language school or a member of a multi-national chain, they will be properly looked after and be helped to achieve at the highest-possible level.
