Your EC experience starts long before your first day at school. From the moment you book your course, we'll be there to help you prepare for student life in the best and smoothest possible way.
We know that the idea of arriving in a new country can be a little daunting, especially if you’re travelling alone for the first time. That’s why your EC family is there to guide and support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At any point during your arrival or stay you can call us on our emergency telephone number (you will be given this number when you book your course). We will work hard to make your arrival a straightforward and stress-free experience.
You can expect a warm, personal welcome and ice-breaker events to help you get to know your fellow students and EC staff. There will also be fun activities for the weekend before your first day at school, so you can get to know the other EC students a little better. Learn more about your first day at EC.
MyEC is your first big step in making your arrival as simple as possible. Our system is a personalised study tool and powerful learning companion you can use throughout your EC journey! You’ll get access to MyEC as soon as you receive your booking confirmation.
Through this online portal, you can:
- Access study materials to start learning before you leave home.
- Complete your placement test before you arrive (saving you time on your first day).
- Fill in the pre-arrival survey so we can better understand your needs and expectations.
Where you choose to live is a central part of your study abroad experience. We have a variety of accommodation options to suit your lifestyle, budget and needs. You can live with other EC students or in a homestay with local English speakers.
Residences often have lively atmospheres suitable for anyone who loves socialising. Our accommodation options are convenient for public transport, making it easy for you to get to school.
If you choose a Homestay, you will live with local English speakers and experience an authentic lifestyle. You will live as your hosts live, eat what they eat, and spend time at home together. Many students enjoy the home-cooked meals and the extra feeling of security in a homestay.
It doesn't matter what kind of accommodation you've chosen, the welcome will be just as good. If you're in a homestay you’ll be greeted by a warm and friendly host. If you've chosen residential option, the residence teams will welcome you and ensure you're happy and settled in.
