English for Academic Purpose Programme

English for Academic Purpose (EAP) Programmes are ‘serious’ but also fun. We know our students can visit UK themselves, with parents or friends. We also know they can explore the many museums, parks and landmarks on their own or with tour guides.

Therefore, when they join our study tour, we want them to gain more than just pictures in front of places and locations. We want them to take home real benefits in terms of English learning.

Experiential Learning Programme

Unlike EAP Programmes, Experiential Learning Programme (ELP) mixes fun, cultural immersion and academic learning. It puts less emphasis on academic improvement. Students will gain a positive experience living in London with host families, visiting sites and popular landmarks while learning English in an authentic environment.
