Malibu, California – enjoy an exceptional setting for your English course in the USA. The city spreads along the most beautiful beaches of the Pacific and the mere evocation of its name gets you dreaming. Open your eyes and feast on beautiful images: the Santa Monica Mountains, endless beaches with laid-back surfers, a plethora of shops and luxury villas owned by Hollywood stars... there you are, at the heart of California.

The summer programme takes place on the vast campus of Pepperdine University, on a gentle hill in the surroundings of Malibu with a spectacular view of the nearby ocean. Step in the shoes of an American student and combine studies, sports and leisure. You will find all you need on campus, including a modern residence, competent and dedicated teaching staff, bright and large classrooms and first-class sports facilities. Take advantage of them to practise tennis, baseball, volleyball, football, beach volleyball, swimming or athletics. All of these activities are included in the price, supervised by qualified activities staff and can be enjoyed in the American way, that is, in a cheerful atmosphere! Three times a week, you will have access to the computer room in order to surf the internet or keep in touch with your family and friends back home.

Passport info
If you are of Swiss or European nationality, no visa is necessary to participate in the programme, insofar as you are in possession of a valid biometric passport which is valid for at least six months following your return date, in accordance with current legislation. Nevertheless, students need to get an electronic travel authorisation, to be completed online a minimum of one week prior to departure (credit card necessary to pay for US administration file handling fees). Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Flight info
Malibu is a great destination for a language study trip abroad. However, you must know that the journey to get there is relatively long with, generally, one stopover, depending on which city you are flying from. Most airline companies will be able to offer you an accompaniment service; therefore do not hesitate to contact us for further information. It is necessary, however, that the student feels capable of managing this long journey. Then, all he/she has left to do is to enjoy American life!
