Living Overseas

Studying in the UK and Ireland

We want you to maximise your time while you’re living overseas. We focus on the cultural and social experience as well as the classroom time. We work very hard to make sure that all of our students feel part of the English Studio community and experience the best of some incredible cities.

Settling in

Coming to a new country to learn English is a very exciting prospect. However, we understand that sometimes it can seem a little daunting. That’s why when you choose to learn English at The English Studio we make sure we’re there to help you with all the things you need to settle in.

Whether it’s advice on health issues, places of worship, opening a bank account or just the best options for a night out, our staff are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and can help you make the most out of your time with us. We also recommend you follow us on Facebook on our UK or Ireland pages to keep up to date.

Local Info

We’ve been teaching English to international students for years. So we know the answers to pretty much any question you may have. Whatever you’re looking for in the local area the chances are we’ll be able to help.

Opening a Bank Account
If you’re going to be in the UK or Ireland for a while then this is a sensible thing to do. For anyone who’s studying on a course with us for 6 months or more we’ll gladly help you open a bank account.

Registering with a Doctor
We can help you do this – come and see us at reception for more details.

Finding Accommodation
We offer a range of accommodation in London, Oxford and Dublin. For more information or if you would like to check availability then just contact us.

Visa Advice
If you have any questions on visa requirements then take a look at our UK Visa Information page or Ireland Visa Information page. We’re happy to try and help with any other questions you may have.

Social programmes

When you come to learn English with us then you can count on having a great time. We go out of our way to make sure that we offer social programmes that will help you experience the best of London and Dublin. Take a look at our Student Life in London and Student Life in Dublin pages to find out more.

Welfare Service

Our schools have nominated welfare and safeguarding team members on hand to support every student. We want to ensure our students feel at home and comfortable while in London or Dublin as quickly as possible; that way they can make the most of their experience with us right from day one. The English Studio team can help with practical information such as finding a doctor, or dentist in the event of illness or giving advice on local banking or travel.

Learning and disability support

Support is on hand as well as multilingual pastoral care via our unique English Studio Connect programme. Student wellbeing is vital to each and every member of our team because when you choose English Studio you become part of our community.

Language School Student Insurance

There is one thing you must do before you come to London, Oxford or Dublin to learn English – get some insurance. For your own financial and personal security, it’s essential that you do this before you come here. We strongly advise that you take out your student insurance at the same time as you book your English course at The English Studio. Why? Because your cover will start on the policy issue date – before you travel here to learn English. Which means that in the unfortunate event of illness or an accident preventing you from travelling, you’ll be covered.

The English Studio has partnered with Endsleigh insurance to offer insurance that is specifically designed with our students in mind. We can arrange your insurance for you at an additional cost of £7.50 per week – just ask one of our team for more information or check the insurance box when you book online. For further details, see our student insurance page.
