About the Programme
ShowBiz English Students join the regular international students for General English classes (20 lessons per week), one full day and two half day excursions per week by private coach to places of social & cultural interest as well as for all meals and evening activities.
The remaining three afternoons per week, when we are on campus, ShowBiz English students will be able to improve not only their English but also their visual arts technique and skills with professional training.
Students take part in tutorials and workshops on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons while other students take part in regular multi-option campus activities.[/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/3″]
