The West End of London is the city’s shopping and entertainment epicentre. Our school is right in the heart of the action, close to Oxford Street, Bond Street and Baker Street tube stations, just a short walk from the calm of Hyde Park and a tube ride from the fun of Camden Town.

In a modern centre with 24 bright and spacious classrooms (35 during high season), you will benefit from Wi-Fi throughout the school, a resource centre with a library, audio and digital material and a computer room with specialised language study materials. There is also a study centre where you can take university-type courses in Business, Computers, Hotel Management and Tourism, as well as a Job Club to help you improve your CV and find work during your studies.

Ich war 5 Monate in London an der BSC-School und habe in dieser Zeit im Student Castle gewohnt. Ich habe viele neue Kontakte geschlossen und mein Englisch verbessert, daher kann ich den Sprachaufenthalt mit ESL jedem weiter empfehlen.

BSC, London Central
Duration: 20 weeks

Having an experience like mine allows you to learn English in an incredible atmosphere. First of all, London is a really huge and cosmopolitan city where you can have anything you want at any time! This city offers a lot of attractions like museums, art galleries, nightclubs and of course, for those who are "shopaholics", a lot of shopping streets. Secondly, the school is in the centre of London, about 5 minutes by foot from the tube station. It's where you spend a lot of time and it's where you meet people from everywhere and create good friendships with them.

BSCLondon Central
Duration: 24 weeks

My name is Magaly, I’m Portuguese and I come from Switzerland. I’ve been studying English for six months and I have to say that it was an amazing experience. After the precious advice of ESL, I have decided to go to London to improve my English and it was the best decision I ever took. London is a wonderful city where I enjoyed my time and where I felt like at home even if in the beginning I felt little homesick. British Study Centres is the best school where I could go to improve my English. All of my teachers were very experienced so I found it very easy to pick up English, and the staff was really nice and helpful when I arrived there without knowing a lot about English. Today, I can say that I’ve improved my English, I’ve met a lot of amazing people and that it was on of the best experience of my life. Thanks to BSC and of course ESL!
