Exciting academic programmes English language classes

Culture Club

Embassy ICT

Our English language classes are designed specifically for short-term language courses. With a maximum of 15 students per class, you will improve your English by focusing on speaking and listening.

Our English classes will improve your speaking skills and increase interaction and classroom participation. And, with many of our students going on to further education courses that will be conducted in English, we also run a series of lively lectures as an alternative to some of the sports and arts options. These allow you to practice the note-taking and listening skills you will need in an academic environment.

Technology plays an increasingly important part in modern education. Many of our summer centres have classrooms equipped with data projectors, computers and, in some cases, interactive whiteboards. This enables us to use video, flipcharts and CD-ROMs in classes.

Don’t worry, be happy! Student welfare is paramount We offer a high standard of care and supervision to all our students. Each centre has a nominated welfare officer who ensures you are happy and well cared for throughout your stay. We also have a guardian system for our individual students in our junior centres. In addition, there are on-site first aiders and established links with local doctors, dentists and hospitals for any first aid issues that may arise. All students under the age of 18 should be aware that for all parts of their programme (lessons and activities) attendance is compulsory. Students under 18 will not be allowed to leave the centre unaccompanied at any time*. *Please note that this does not apply in our adult centres (16+)

I think that this holiday is an important experience because it gives us the opportunity to visit new and different places and meet lots of other students of different nationalities. Friederike, Germany

Arrival in the country

StudyCare insurance

Embassy Summer provides a meet and greet service for all students who have requested a transfer to the centre. All students under the age of 18 travelling to or from a centre must be accompanied by an adult. You will be met on arrival and taken to your accommodation. For students aged 18 or over, or those travelling with a parent or guardian, we will provide information and directions to the centre.

It is essential that all students travelling abroad have adequate insurance in case of a medical or other emergency. Embassy offers a comprehensive insurance policy called StudyCare which is speciďŹ cally designed to meet the needs of international students. Please contact us for more details of this policy.

Help during your stay On arrival at the centre, you will be welcomed by our staff and receive a full induction to enable you to settle in quickly and enjoy your stay with us.

For the safety of all students and so that we may provide proper care, it is imperative that students make us fully aware of any medical or psychiatric conditions that are being treated. We reserve the right to refuse enrolments from students who we feel will not be able to participate fully in our programmes. Students who do not properly notify us of a condition may be excluded from the programme. GH WX V

All students are issued with an ID Card during their stay, for which you should bring a passport photograph. Students must keep the ID Card with them at all times, it contains not only the address of the centre, but important telephone numbers should you require assistance.

How to book

Extra Information

Terms and Conditions

Your local agent We recommend that you book your course through one of the many Embassy Summer agents around the world. They have the information, knowledge and experience to answer your questions and help you make the right choice. They are also a useful contact point for you before you leave home.

Age limits There is a minimum and maximum age limit for some of the Embassy Summer schools, as indicated in the brochure. For applications outside the recommended age range, Embassy Summer will have the final decision. Students below the minimum age for a centre will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances. They must be accompanied by an adult leader who will take full responsibility for their safety and welfare, and they may not be included in classes unless there is a suitable class for them.

All enrolments are subject to the following conditions which become legally binding on acceptance of enrolment by Embassy Summer.

If you would like us to help you find your local agent, please contact us. Alternatively, you can book directly through our website embassyces.com/summer. Confirmation of enrolment We will process the booking and confirm your enrolment in writing to you, or your agent, and send you all the information you need. Homestay students will normally receive details of their accommodation one to two weeks before arrival. Special requests Students, or their agents, are welcome to make special requests regarding their programme or accommodation. Whilst every effort will be made to fulfil these requests, Embassy Summer cannot guarantee to be able to comply with every request, and such requests cannot be made a pre-condition of a booking with Embassy Summer. Payment You should make your payment to your agent or, if booking directly, by bank transfer direct to Embassy. Full details are included on the application form attached to this brochure. All payment must be received 14 days before students arrive. Transfers, accommodation or tuition will not be provided unless, full payment has been received. All bookings are made subject to our Terms and Conditions of booking. Start dates All courses start on Sunday with the academic programme commencing on Monday (except where indicated). Students should therefore plan to arrive on Sunday. Students or groups who join international programmes midweek may not be able to be integrated into international classes until the following Monday. Lessons In some centres lessons may take place either in the morning or afternoon and will normally alternate weekly. This means that students having lessons in the afternoon one week will normally have morning lessons the following week.

Embassy ICT Technology plays an increasingly important part in modern education and here at Embassy we endeavour to be market leaders. Many of the summer centres we use have classrooms equipped with data projectors, computers and, in some cases, interactive white-boards. This enables us to include video, flipcharts and CD-ROMs into the lesson. Trinity Examination We are pleased to offer students travelling to the UK the Trinity Examination in Spoken English at all of our centres. The cost for 2012 will be £65 per student for levels 1-6 and £85 for levels 7-12. This cost does not include preparation classes, however we can offer these at an additional cost of £20 per student for a total of four hours whilst at the centre. These classes will be run as group classes. Please note that the Trinity Examination is subject to a minimum number of 12 participants, and we are happy to advise you if that number has been reached at your chosen location. All Trinity Examination bookings must be submitted by 30 May 2012. Register of sponsor Embassy Summer is accredited for the provision of English and Academic courses for overseas students through the UKBA Register of Sponsors, Sponsor Licence Number RFXNY1AK2. This means that unlike those providers who are not accredited, we are fully able to assist you in obtaining your students’ visas for studying in the UK. General disclaimer Please note that the colleges and universities listed in the brochure, provide facilities only. The summer course is run by and for Embassy Summer and there is no connection with the colleges and universities, in terms of operations.

1. Payment of Fees All fees including application fee must be paid in full no later than 14 days before arrival. Transfers and accommodation will not be confirmed until all monies have been paid in full. 2. Services The company reserves the right to change the particulars of the services, including changes to courses, locations, facilities and dates of the programmes where circumstances beyond the company’s control necessitate such changes or where the number of bookings received does not reach the minimum numbers required to operate a course viably. 3. General Refund Policy All refunds will be sent to the account of the Embassy representative to whom the fees were originally paid, or to the individual from whom Embassy has received the original direct payment. If a student’s visa application is rejected after payment has been received all fees, excluding any cancellation fees detailed in the Cancellation Policy below, will be refunded within 28 days, provided a visa refusal letter is received by our International Admissions Centre at least 2 working days before the course is due to start and the student has fulfilled all requirements for a visa application. No refund will be made if a visa rejection is based on student’s failure to meet the necessary criteria for their chosen visa category. Students in Los Angeles and San Francisco must sign a California State Enrolment & Refund Agreement form. Refunds will be processed according to these terms and conditions. Australia In Australia this agreement, and the availability of complaints and appeals processes, does not remove the right of the student to take action under Australia’s consumer protection laws. Refunds will be provided to students within 28 days if the student defaults and within 14 days if the school defaults. In the unlikely event that the school is unable to deliver a course in full, the student will be offered a refund of all the course money paid to date. The refund will be paid within 14 days of the day on which the course ceased being provided. Alternatively, the student may be offered enrolment in a suitable alternative course by the school at no extra cost. The student has the right to choose whether they would prefer a full refund of course fees, or to accept a place on another course. If they choose placement on another course, Embassy will ask them to sign a document to indicate acceptance of the placement. If the school is unable to provide a refund or place the student on an alternative course our Tuition Assurance Scheme (TAS) provider will place them on a suitable alternative course at no extra cost. Finally, if the TAS provider cannot place the student in a suitable alternative course, the ESOS Assurance Fund Manager will attempt to place them on a suitable alternative course or, if this is not possible, the student will be eligible for a refund as calculated by the Fund Manager.
