‘International students in the UK can pay in excess of GBP25,000 per year in university fees and living expenses. Therefore, it is essential that they not only make the right choice, but that they have the support in theUKthat they need to make their time productive and happy. A UK education is an investment in a child’s future and is not cheap. We aim to give them the best possible head start. London is a very popular destination for visitors from Middle East and Asia, especially between June and September. The Summer school has been organised to coincide with that time, so while families are enjoying the sights children can gain invaluable skills.’
