You get to experience what student life in the UK can be, before you commit

to a costly University or College course.

You will be hosted at Shuttleworth College in the beautiful English countryside in Bedfordshire. A very charming English Estate, with its cultural heritage going back several centuries, and located in the beautiful rural Bedfordshire countryside.

 

The college offers on-site tutoring so you won’t have to waste time in unnecessary transport back and forth to lecture rooms.

 

Accommodation is also in the college grounds, and the student rooms have comfortable sized beds and individual en-suite bathrooms, so you don’t have to share!

If you require, then the College provides full Halal catering facilities.

Extra Activities & Excursions

 

The best way to improve your English language skills is to  go out and try it for yourself - and the best way to remember what you have learnt, is by exploring and experiencing the many cultural aspects that go with the language.

 

Our “Full English Culture Experience", lets you combine learning  with experiencing a wide range of

fun and cultural activities so you can fully appreciate the richness of the English language and culture. Especially if you are going to be studying here as a student.


You can choose between the many activities below - or anything else that you would like to do!

 

 

 

 

Visting London

 

Shopping in Oxford Street, or if you are feeling adventerous you might like to explore

Camden Market -  possibly the nearest thing the UK has to a Middle Eastern style market;

there are hundreds of market stalls in narrow streets and many street food outlets to try.

 

Other places we will see are the recreation of William Shakespeare’s Globe theatre on the banks of the Thames and we will take a boat trip on the famous river as well.

 

No visit to London is complete without a ride on the London Eye, high above the city we

have arranged a special occasion complete with chocolate Truffles for all to enjoy as we ride

135 metres up in the air.

 

 

Experience Culture in Cambridge


This is an afternoon visit; we see the famous university colleges, its historical buildings, modern 

shopping centre and its many traditional  eating places. 

 

It is great fun to have a go on a Punt, the traditional flat bottomed boat so we will include that 

as well weather permitting. Everyone will be given the opportunity to ‘punt’ the boat by

driving a large pole in to the river bed and move the boat along the historic river Cam.
 

 

 

Having Fun in Woburn Safari Park


This is a drive through Zoo, where the animals get right up close and personal to your car

as you drive through the park, including Lions, Tigers, Rhinos, Bears and Monkeys.

When we get safely through the Safari park there are many activities to enjoy, if you are feeling very active there is a rope walk called ‘Go Ape’.

The Go Ape experience is a 2 – 3 hour Tree Top Adventure. You'll receive a full safety

briefing before you fly down zip-wires, leap off the Tarzan Swing and tackle rope bridges

and crossings, all high up in the trees.

If you would rather take a more leisurely look at the animals we can do that instead as well.

 

 

SPECIAL BREXIT OFFER!

 

Britain has voted to leave the European Union, and nobody knows for certain what that will

mean in the future. But at least  until 2021 you can  still continue to travel, study, and even

work in UK without visa complicions or other hassle, if you are a European citizen.

 

So to make the most of the next 2 years, we are offering a special "Brexit EU Student Package", in collaboration with Oakland's College in St. Albans, just north of London,

and only 2 trainstops from London Luton Airport!

  • ​​​​ Accomodation on the college grounds
  •  Outdoor activities on the college grounds, like horse riding, tennis, rugby, basketball and other activities
