About our English study year programmes in England, UK
Studying with ELC for 6 months or more will enable you to make significant progress in your English and get a good understanding of UK life and culture.
It can be an exciting and life-changing experience - you will make international friends, explore a new country and learn more about yourself. You will also be able to gain an international qualification in English as well as the English language skills that will help you in the future.
The main feature of our study year programme (sometimes called an academic year programme), is that you can pick and mix the course elements you like during your stay with us. That means you could start with several weeks - or a few months - of general English in the school of your choice, and then switch into an exam class in preparation for a Cambridge exam, for example. The only condition to benefit from these programmes is that you study for at least 24 weeks.
