Social Programmes for International Students

Work Hard, Play Hard!

  • A varied and enjoyable social programme to make your stay more fun
  • Opportunities to socialise with other students and staff and practise your English

The Social and Cultural programme is a great opportunity for students to practise their English. We organise social events, local and national excursions for our students giving students the chance to find out more about British culture and the way of life.

Full day excursions may* include London, Cambridge, Oxford, Manchester and various Theme Parks. Leisure activities include ice-skating, bowling, football and rowing. Throughout the school year we organise cinema, restaurant and pub evenings ensuring that students have an unforgettable experience.

*NOTE: We may organise excursions and leisure activities depending on the demand and/or number of students. If you want to plan a trip, we will try to help you. 

Social Programme Prices

Each event is priced individually, with full costs available from the ILS office. As a guide, prices are typically around £15/person for a half day event and £25/person for a full day event.
