Your Journey

Before Arrival

We know how valuable your time is and how important it is to feel prepared. With EC Online you can now access lots of study materials and test your starting English level before leaving home. You can also tell us your learning goals and motivations, so we can prepare for your arrival too.

Personal Welcome

If you are staying in a Homestay, you will arrive to a warm and friendly welcome from your host. If you choose a residence option, an EC representative will be on hand at the weekend to make sure you are happy and settled. You can be sure to feel 100% at home before school on Monday.

First Sunday

You can join in with a number of activities on the Sunday before school begins. These could include brunch, a city tour and a delicious local dinner – all while getting to know EC staff and fellow students. The timetable will be available 2 weeks before arrival.

The Orange Carpet

We give the best possible welcome to our students. Refreshments, music and 100% staff attention creates a comforting, friendly environment. A short orientation talk with useful materials, is followed by lessons introducing learning at EC and local life.

Personalised learning

We know the most important part of your experience is your learning! We will analyse your individual performance and give you a customised plan. You can access your learning plan at any time on EC Online, and use it to track and measure your progress.
