College Campuses

Students have access to the College for most of the day and some evenings. Library opening times vary, but generally are the same as students’ class times. Every student has free access to the Internet and their own e-mail account.

There are cafés on all sites which offer an excellent range of hot & cold food and drinks. Vending machines selling drinks and snacks are also available.

“Homestay” Accommodation

The International Office can arrange accommodation for you whilst you are studying with us. This is normally with a local English family, living in Wirral, Merseyside, on our “Homestay” programme and costs from £100 to £120 per week. The price covers bed, breakfast & evening meals during the week and all meals at weekends.
