Live and learn English


Bright personality? Choose EC Brighton for your English Exchange 

Sharing is caring!

Brighton has a fascinating and hedonist history and is home to Regency architecture, the Pavilion, the infamous piers, pop culture and LGBTQI+ communities, so if you are interested in many things and love to live life to the fullest, you should choose to study English in Brighton. We have two schools, one for 18+ and one for those aged 30+ and the choice of courses rages from General English, through Academic Year and exam preparation courses, English in the City and English for Work. 

When you are not in class, there is so much to see and do and these are all opportunities to use your English language skills and make new friends and have new experiences. 

The Pavilion 

Prince George, who became the Prince Regent created the palace with his zany and exotic taste; making it a much-visited site in the UK today. The pavilion was also lived in by King William IV and for a brief period by Queen Victoria – who did not like it and so sold it to the Brighton Corporation in 1850 – making it a visitor’s attraction instead of a palace, today.  

Aside from the incredible and fantastical interiors, the pavilion was a WW1 Hospital for Indian Army soldiers and then for British army soldiers who had lost their limbs, until 1920.

Brighton Museums 

There is lots more history in the Brighton & Hove area, not least The Museum of Creativity which has an eclectic calendar of events including sessions and workshops on Manga, creative writing, printing, origami, grass basket, painting, ABBA exhibitions and underground tunnel tours. These are all things that would certainly be memorable experiences as well as learning opportunities. 

Shopping in Brighton 

For vintage, hand-made, indie brand hunters and those who like food, Brighton has many places to choose from; the lanes, North Laine, the seafront, Hannington’s Estate, Snoopers Paradise, and London Road which also has a movie theatre – the Duke of York’s Picturehouse – recognisable by the pair of striped legs exiting the roof.  EC Brighton is right by the Lanes! 

The i360 

And to take it all in, why not ascend the 138-meter tower and see the view from the i360? While up there, check out the Sky Bar or book to one of the Dark Skies Stargazing or Yoga in the Sky sessions? For the thrill seekers, you can walk around the perimeter or in a separate experience – you can choose to hang in mid-air for a few thrilling minutes while you descend to the beach. 

So, make Brighton your home with our choice of Homestay or Student Residence accommodation choices!
