Information for students and agents

Students and educational agents can choose from over 500 quality assured UK English language centres.

Accredited centres include language schools, summer schools, home-tuition providers, independent school/colleges, further education colleges and universities.

There are centres located in busy cities as well as in the countryside or by the sea. Centres offer different courses, so there is a wide range of courses to choose from, including general English, English with activities and specific courses for academic study or professional enhancement.

If you’re looking for an accredited non-English language course, you won’t find it here; there are other accrediting bodies for those. Also, if the English language centre you’re looking for is not listed here it may have another form of accreditation or inspection. Please see the list on the Short Term Study Visa page of the gov.uk website.
