We only accept adults at the school. By that we mean that a student must be at least 17 years old on the day they start the course. At the other end of the scale, there is no older age limit on joining the school. While it's fair to say that the majority of our students are in their 20s and 30s, we also have plenty of students in their 40s, 50s and 60s. We welcome them all!
We can help you with a wide number of accommodation options. Most students prefer to stay with a host family but we can also book you a bed in a hostel or a hotel or help with other accommodation needs.
