Discover the ancient capital whilst enjoying the facilities of a modern university campus!

Winchester, the ancient capital of England, is today one of the most beautiful cathedral cities in the UK. The city is renowned for its high quality of life, just a 1-hour-drive from London. The picturesque cobbled streets that surround Winchester Cathedral offer a bustling atmosphere for shopping.

Your English summer school is based on the modern King Alfred Campus of the University of Winchester, just a 15-minute-walk from the historic city centre.

Our English summer school is located on a very green and hilly university campus. The IP Ocean Lounge, where you will meet friends from all over the world and where most of our activities take place, is situated at the heart of the campus.

The IP Fruit 'n' Fit - Corner offers you all day long water, tea and fruit. Your lessons take place in a traditional building situated next to the modern refectory. You need less than 5 minutes to your comfortable accommodation. You will also find a campus cafe, a campus shop and some snack vending machines around.

Besides this, the campus offers sports fields for soccer, tennis and other games.

Our Supervision Concept

Your safety and welfare are very important to us, therefore our supervision concept for students in our Summer Language Holidays Programme is based on a compulsory activity programme during afternoons and evenings seven days a week. The cornerstone of this programme are the daily „Time to Talk“ meetings.

Our staff ratio on campus for the age group 10-12 years is 1:10, however supervision groups during activities on or off campus will have different ratios of up to 15 students for 10-12 year old depending on the situation.
