About Group Programmes

We are able to develop a variety of customised programmes to suit the needs of your student group. Please contact us and tell us exactly what you are looking for and we will be happy to prepare a programme and send you a quotation. Many groups choose to study English in the morning and have activities in the afternoon. These programmes always receive excellent feedback from the students and the tour leaders. For large groups, we use premises such as University College, Lady Margaret Hall or the Oxford Union. The following examples should give you a flavour of what we do.
