Kaplan International

What makes our partner school in New York a great place to study? It’s the perfect location within the hustle and bustle of Manhattan! As a brand new completely repurposed school, it’s modern and bright, and you’ll love being just one street away from Central Park South. Thanks to its emblematic status as the city that never sleeps, students travel from all over the world to study English in New York. Socialise with new friends in the lounge, or grab some food together in the local cafés and restaurants. Step right out into the very heart of Manhattan: with the lively theatre district and artistic icons such as the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) only a stone’s throw away, you’re in prime position to explore the city’s cultural gems.

In summer, some classes may be offered at a nearby location.
