The school is located on the famous campus of UCLA, the University of California in Los Angeles. Situated only 20 minutes by car (or 45 minutes by public transport) from the Santa Monica beaches, it's well served by public transport and easily reachable from the Los Angeles airport (approximately a 30-minute drive). Lessons take place on-site, and the classroom buildings are near the dining facilities and just a few minutes walk from the student residence. Wi-Fi is available throughout the school. The campus is equipped with several sports facilities such as tennis courts, basketball courts and open-air swimming pools – the perfect setting to practise English while having fun with your new international friends!

Passport info
If you are of Swiss or European nationality, no visa is necessary to participate in the programme, insofar as you are in possession of a valid biometric passport which is valid for at least six months following your return date, in accordance with current legislation. Nevertheless, students need to get an electronic travel authorisation, to be completed online a minimum of one week prior to departure (credit card necessary to pay for US administration file handling fees). Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Flight info
Los Angeles is a great destination for a language study trip abroad. However, you must know that the journey to get there is relatively long with, generally, one stopover, depending on which city you are flying from. Most airline companies will be able to offer you an accompaniment service; therefore do not hesitate to contact us for further information. It is necessary, however, that the student feels capable of managing this long journey. Then, all he/she has left to do is to enjoy American life!
