Cambridge is famous for the quality of its higher education and the traditions surrounding its ancient colleges, but even if you don't attend one of our universities you can still study in this beautiful city.
Thousands of students from all over the world are discovering that it is also a fantastic destination to improve their English language skills.
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.
There are two government-recognised schemes for accrediting language schools, each inspecting establishments and encouraging best practice in the industry. These are run by the Accreditation Body for Language Services (ABLS) and Accreditation UK (British Council)
Accreditation by either scheme enables schools to support applications for student visitor visas.
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.
