The Activities Coordinator arranges a regular schedule of local activities, day-trips, and weekend excursions to area attractions. These trips are organized for both short-term International Language School students as well as for Academic Year Abroad students.
Activities are an important part of your course. They not only help you to relax after a day studying but more importantly they provide you with an opportunity to meet and make friends from other classes, other countries and other cultures. They provide the essential complement to the classroom, a chance to talk to new friends in your one common language – English.
Typical Activities and Excursions
We have a weekly program of activities on campus (dances, movie nights, coffeehouse nights) at either no cost or minimal cost. The Activities Coordinator will also organize sports games and tournaments, depending on student interest and participation.
We arrange weekend excursions and day trips to local attractions. Excursions could range from day trip to Oxford, or the Roman City of Bath, to weekend trips to Edinburgh, Dublin, Amsterdam or Paris. These prices are subject to change. Our excursions are organized at a minimum cost, are great fun and extremely good value. You are always accompanied by a member of staff.

The city has a wide range of activities from ten-pin bowling to horse riding, so whatever your interests are, the Activities staff is more than happy to help.
Brighton also boasts many museums and other tourist attractions such as The Royal Pavilion, which is Brighton’s most famous landmark. This is an extravagant oriental style palace, built for George, the Prince Regent in 1815. His love of Brighton first made the town fashionable, and “Regency” architecture gives the town its special character. You can also visit the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery which houses 15-20th century art, as well as excellent temporary exhibitions or the Sea Life Centre in which there are live displays of over 60 marine species. Your stay would not be complete without a trip to The Brighton Pier with its amusement arcades or The Lanes which reflect the charming old town of Brighton, famous for its narrow winding streets and alleyways housing interesting little shops and restaurants.
