You can arrange a free trial lesson after you have taken a placement test and we have offered you a group at your level . Please contact us for details or to arrange your first lesson.
We help our students to find the best affordable accommodation. The accommodation is selected for location, transport facilities and friendly environment. As Leeds is a university city, there is plenty of accommodation to choose from, to suit every budget. You can choose from:
Home Stay Accommodation The home stay accommodation consists of self catering, bed and breakfast and half board subject to availability. You will live with a local family and become part of the household and integrate with the host family’s lifestyle. Most home stay accommodation is located in the suburbs, which is where families live in private houses. We inspect home stay accommodation providers regularly.
Independent Accommodation You can rent shared student accommodation or your own independent bedsit, flat, apartment or house, depending on your budget. You can also stay in one of the many hotels in Leeds. If you choose this option we can direct you to a local estate agent or accommodation booking website.
Students Aged Under 18
Please note home stay accommodation is only available to students aged over 18. If you are 16-17 years old you will need to live with a guardian or your parents, unless you are part of a visiting group of students.
The social programme helps you to integrate with other students as well as life in the UK.
