What will I do on my first day?
All students take a Kaplan International English test, meet the school staff and have an introduction to the school, facilities, courses and the local area.

You will receive an individual timetable later in the day and your classes begin on the following day. Remember, if you have questions feel free to ask! The school staff is there to help, especially on your first day.

Will my lessons be in the morning or afternoon?
This depends on the location of your school and time of year – many of the schools run classes in the morning and afternoon so be prepared for this.

However, once we have set your lesson schedule we will aim to keep it the same for some time as some students have a part time job.

Remember though, that your lessons and school work must come first and any paid work must be scheduled around this.

Do I have to buy my course books?
All study materials for use in class and for structured study will be provided but these resources are usually loaned and have to be returned on the final day of the program. If you wish to purchase books you can do so in school or at a local book shop.

Can I have a holiday?
Holiday breaks depend on your visa regulations and you must give the schools at least one month’s notice if you want to take a holiday. The long-term English courses (Academic Year or Academic Semester) have set holiday dates, which must be followed.

Therefore, you should check them when you book your course so you can plan ahead and not take holiday outside these published dates. All schools are closed on public holidays like Christmas, New Year and Easter.
