For students choosing to learn English abroad, coming to London is unquestionably a superb choice, with its welcoming and multicultural population. However there is so much to see and do that new arrivals to London may unsurprisingly be intimidated. With its welcoming environment, lively students and helpful staff, UIC (United International College) aims to make the learning experience easy.
Whether a student is visiting London for a few weeks or a few months, UIC feels that a student’s experience should be as trouble free as possible. Students can have their housing organised for them, choosing to stay with a local family or in residences, and UIC staff can also meet them at the airport. All new students will receive a welcome talk with advice and information about the school and London. In addition, any problems can be directed to the helpful UIC staff, many of whom speak several languages.
Ensuring that students meet people and develop friendships is high on UIC’s agenda, and with people from more than 50 countries at the school this is made easy. There are also many British students who come to this English Language School in London to learn one of the many foreign languages taught at UIC. Getting to know these students is a great help to foreign students wanting to learn more about British culture, and a language exchange can even be arranged.
Students learning English in London will encounter one of the most exciting cities in the world, with its many historic and cultural sights as well as numerous bars, clubs and shops. UIC encourages learners to get involved in this cosmopolitan and friendly culture, an ideal way to improve their English outside of the classroom. For adventurous students there is plenty to do near the school, which is only a short walk from Oxford Circus. In addition, to ensure that all students are effectively eased into London life, UIC offers a busy programme of social activities, with something for all students to get involved in, whether it is a party, a daytrip to Oxford or a visit to the pub.
