Study Holidays Programs

A study holiday abroad is a way to develop one’s own autonomy and measure oneself in new contexts, in a foreign language, with another culture. It is an opportunity for personal growth and linguistic improvement which also strengthens your student profile.

In Global Language School we believe firmly in the value and importance of an experience abroad and that is why we offer tailored study holidays which focus on your abilities, aspirations and requirements.

Through our main school (Peterborough & Newcastle) and our partnerships international organisations (in countries such as US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Malta …) we can offer students a variety of opportunities in numerous types of establishment, staying either in a college structure or in a host family.
