Kaplan International

It’d be difficult to find a better location to study English in London: our partner school’s Covent Garden location is central, convenient, and surrounded by some of the city’s most enticing areas. With Chinatown, Soho, Bloomsbury and the bright lights of the West End a short walk away, London is at your feet! Kaplan London Covent Garden is found in a beautiful historic building, with 15 classrooms and supportive, skilled teaching staff who’ll help you achieve your English goals. The school has an outdoor patio, perfect for taking breaks and socialising with other students. Coin-operated coffee machines are available on site, though studying right in the centre of London makes it easy to grab a meal outside in one of the many restaurants, delis, and cafés!
