The first session starts with a four-day orientation in London allowing you to get to know your fellow students as well as see the major sites. The second session ends in a trip to London to celebrate finishing the course and relaxing with your fellow students and new friends.

Staff will be in London throughout your stay and will meet you on arrival at either Heathrow airport or at the hotel.   Bed and breakfast accommodation will be at the Travelodge Covent Garden, which is in the very centre of the city. The trip will include visits to some key sites in London, guided tours and free time to explore.

This trip will also include trips to key sites and guided tours. Accommodation is provided at the Travelodge Covent Garden, in the city centre, and includes breakfast.

St Ives

An archetypal Cornish fishing village, and one of the best seaside towns in the UK. St Ives is set on the dramatic North Cornwall coast. The town is a haven for artists and surfers alike. While here you might like to wander around the cobbled streets, visit one of the art galleries or take a boat trip to Seal Island.


Bath is a city steeped in history, famous for its Roman Baths. Today, you can still swim in these restorative waters at the Thermae Bath Spa. Other attractions include the Royal Crescent, the Jane Austen Centre and a multitude of boutique shops and cafes.

Please note this trip is only included for students participating in both session 1 and session 2 of the International Summer School.
