Why choose a study abroad in England?

England can be quickly reached from every major European city. Without a doubt, it is the most coveted destination for a study abroad for students from around the world who wish to improve their English language skills or even embark on a High School Program, an entire year of adventure.

A study has shown that 63% of students traveling to England for a study abroad program are female. Among Italian students, the youngest ones often choose “Mini stay” language programs or group summer study vacations with their teacher to escort them. The older ones, however, prefer traveling alone, as they are more autonomous and independent.

Regardless of the type of journey, choosing England certainly guarantees an unforgettable experience. The preferred destination is, of course, London, the capital. Modern and cosmopolitan, it attracts thousands of visitors, students, and young people from all over the world every year, making it a top choice for more mature travelers.

Should you have an escort or not?

For the younger ones up to 17 years old, we often recommend a study trip with an escort to one of our more traditional centers operated by our partner and market leader for 35 years, L’Astrolabio. Here, safety and organization guarantee a surprise-free vacation.

Your children will experience the more traditional side of England with a study vacation in places like Worcester, Cirencester, London Egham, Nottingham, Eastbourne, and Cardiff, where we exclusively manage the Royal Agricultural University center in Cirencester.

However, more adventurous explorers prefer to travel alone, enjoying maximum autonomy and independence. But whether you choose to go alone or with company, England is undoubtedly the best destination for a study trip that will change your life!

But if you’re an independent explorer, you’re free to choose from splendid cities like Oxford, Cambridge, and Manchester. And if you need to unwind from the stress of school, Bath is perfect for recharging and relaxing.

In any case, choosing England as the destination for your study trip is undoubtedly the best choice for an unforgettable experience and to improve your language skills. What are you waiting for? Start planning your adventure now!

The purpose of study abroad in England is to fully immerse in the local culture, discover the wonderful beauty of the country, from the modern cities to the vast green expanses of quintessentially British England and the characteristic coastal areas.
