Study programme + paid work (only for citizens of the European Community)
It is mandatory to reach an intermediate-higher level in English before you can start the “work” part of the program. The first step before registering is to take a test to assess your level. So we can decide how many weeks you will have to study English before you can start the work. First, you must take a course of at least 4 weeks (or more if more weeks will be needed to reach the required intermediate-upper level). And then the work lasts 3 months minimum, and 12 months maximum. Students are always placed in beginner positions, mainly in the hotel and restaurant sector*. And it is necessary to have experience in these sectors. Investments are almost always made in other parts of the UK (but never in the city of London itself). The location will depend on the job opportunities at the time of placement. *Would you like to be placed in a more qualified position? This corresponds to programs with unpaid professional internships. The language school also offers this kind of program, ask us for details.
