An important part of the General English Summer Programme are the integrated social activities and trips. These are an excellent opportunity for you to socialise with the international mix of students on the course and to practise your English outside the classroom. In recent years General English Summer programme students have enjoyed the following:

  • Welcome Party and Quiz Afternoon

The cost of trips are included in the course fees. Entrance to certain museums are extra but a free alternative is offered. There is a small charge (approx £5.00 per person) for the social events to cover the cost of food and refreshments plus bowling. Entry to the Gower Heritage Centre is £7.50
