Discover programmes

Designed to give students the best chance to explore their summer location

Discovery programmes

When students come to study with us they love to learn about the history and culture of the surrounding area. Because travelling abroad is about adventure as well as learning, we’ve created Discovery programmes for our London and Dublin centres.

The tuition element in our Discovery programmes follows the same syllabus
as our Standard programme, and tours are delivered by Twin activity leaders. These programmes are a great way for students to enjoy learning about the cities in which they study, while also putting their new English skills into practice.

Discover London

London is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world - it’s fast-paced, diverse and there are perhaps more things to see and do than in any other European capital. Our Discover London programme is operated from our Westminster summer centre.

For London, this programme incorporates a ‘zig-zag’ curriculum, where
students alternate their days between tuition and sightseeing. Our specially
created walking tours are made to give students a stimulating experience
of London’s many features.

Discover Dublin

Dublin is one of the most attractive and historic cities in Europe. With such an interesting history, students can find something fascinating around every corner. Our walking tours and activities will help students discover the hidden gems of Dublin.

Dublin
