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.

Our partner school is located in the heart of London, close to some of the main attractions, such as the British Museum and Covent Garden. Holborn tube station is 5 minutes away. Twelve spacious and comfortable classrooms – with modern video equipment and interactive boards – are spread over two buildings overlooking Bloomsbury Square. During the high season, 8 additional classrooms are also available. You will surely love the student room, with tablets and free Internet access, the cafeteria and the covered garden, ideal to meet up with your new friends during coffee or lunch break. A combination of friendly atmosphere and modern facilities that will help you improve your English skills very quickly.

The school also offers a “Job Club”, a free service for students who wish to find a part-time job during their studies. Every two weeks, the Job Club will give you information about potential employers (bars, hotels, shops, etc.) and the current laws, and will help you reviewing/adapting your CV.

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!
