BSC, Manchester
Duration: 24 weeks

Following my first months spent here, I don't regret my choice. Each day that goes by, Manchester does not cease to surprise me more. The typical and atypical pubs, live concerts, shopping, students on each corner of the street, the "Red Devils" etc... BSC is a school with a great reputation. A great variety of teachers, students from throughout the world, a team who cater for the small needs of students and numerous activities are all the ingredients necessary so that our English is at a top level at the end of our stay. Manchester represents culture and diversity with a nice mix of flavours. This city is therefore the ideal place to improve your skills in the language of Shakespeare.

The school has a central location and is easily reachable by public transport. I met many people of many different nationalities there. Thanks to the teachers and the lively courses they give, I could make great progress. If you are a football fan like me, you need to go to Manchester! I achieved one of my dreams by attending 2 football matches, it was the best atmosphere in the world!!! Apart from football, there is a lot to do in Manchester, you never get bored. The city is filled with shops, bars, night clubs, restaurants. You can also visit many things. My host family is adorable, I really felt comfortable there. In short, my language course was a great experience with a great quality/price ratio and I intend to do it again next year.

I have been living in Failsworth, Manchester with Chris, a 57-year-old lady working at Manchester library, for a week already!! She has a very pretty house with garden, I stay in a large bedroom, everything is perfect in the house and Chris is really nice to me!!
I’m glad I arrived at her place :)
At school, everything is fine, I have a pre-intermediate level, I’m happy.
In Manchester, people are friendly, I’m starting to make new friends, at first it wasn’t easy but as time goes by, and thanks to the school’s activities, I was able to meet other students.

Host family
Use the language you’ve learned in class in real-life situations in a friendly environment by staying with a host family. All of the families are selected with care by the school. As a multicultural city par excellence, Manchester caters especially well for students who require special meals (halal, kosher, etc.). Staying in a single room with half-board provided, around 40 minutes by public transport from the school, you'll make fast progress with English.

Wilmslow Park residence (from 18 years)
A 20-minute bus ride from the school, this modern residence is the perfect accommodation option, as it’s located in the heart of the city with its nightlife and every possible amenity. You’ll stay in a single room with a private bathroom and free Wi-Fi, and can meet up with the other students in the common areas: a kitchen, living room and gym. Bed linen is included, but not towels, and laundry facilities for pay are available onsite. The common areas are cleaned once a week.

Student House
Live with other students while keeping your independence! In this comfortable student house, bedrooms (with private or shared bathrooms) feature 2 beds or a double bed, and can be single or shared. You’ll have access to free Wi-Fi, a TV in the common room, the fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine. Bed linen is provided, but not bath towels. The student house is located in a residential area 15 minutes from the school by bus, and is well connected to the rest of the city.

The school goes out of its way to help students make the most out of Manchester. A staff member organises social activities, which may include a Manchester music tour, a visit to the BBC or trips to the city’s football stadiums, home to Manchester City and Manchester United. The school also invites students to take advantage of three free-of-charge activities, including its conversation, debate and film clubs. From superb shopping to live music, sports to theatre, there is something for everyone in Manchester.
