What our students say


I was very impressed by their work environment and the way employees interact with each other using just their first name. We were able to understand how organisations operate in the UK, everything is very transparent.

Faisal from Middle East College, Oman

I’m studying for my A-Levels and was considering to apply for a Civil Engineering degree in a UK university before attending the summer school. After meeting my prospective lecturers, I decided to submit an application for September 2014 and make Coventry my second home.

Rami from Montessori School, Jordan

Despite visiting the UK before, I had the opportunity to travel more than ever in just three weeks; we visited the BBC, Bloomberg and Jaguar Land Rover headquarters, learned more about how the British do business and even met one of the news broadcasters at Bloomberg. The social highlights were the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, sunbathing in Bournemouth and shopping in London.
