Eastgate Clock, Chester

Chester
University of Chester - Residence
Chester is a new university (2005) but it has a history dating
back to 1939. The eclectic mix of modern and historical
buildings combine to create an attractive campus, set in a city
that was founded as a Roman fort 2000 years ago and is now
becoming a must-see European destination.

The campus itself is just a short walk away from the vibrant
city centre with its mix of cafes, shops and ancient walls,
rows, amphitheatre, historic architecture and archaeological
features.

St Albans Campus

London
St Albans Campus - Residence
St Albans Campus is set amongst beautiful woodland and
green space, 35 minutes from London Heathrow Airport. Built
in 1901 as a convent for the All Saints Sisters, this campus
has undergone a recent renovation to convert it into an
international education centre.

This location offers groups the opportunity to be close to the
hustle and bustle of Central London but study in the more
picturesque setting of rural Hertfordshire.

Badminton School

Bristol
Badminton School - Residence
Bristol is one of Britain’s favourite cities. It has a proud maritime
history and it is from here that many of England’s great explorers
set off to travel the world. Now a thriving cultural centre and the
country’s 11th biggest city, in 2017 Bristol topped the Sunday Times
rankings of best places to live in Britain and was listed 4th in the
Rough Guides’ top ten cities to visit worldwide.

Badminton School itself is set in stunning walled grounds in
Westbury-on-Trym on the outskirts of Bristol. It is a beautiful
mixture of old and new buildings surrounded by glorious gardens.
The accommodation has bright and airy bedrooms and comfortable
common rooms - many of them with fantastic views over Bristol.

 The University Explorer programme is a 3 week course for
 ambitious students aged 14-17 years old. It is designed for
 students who hope to go onto later study at undergraduate
 level and seek an insight into life at a British university.
 It aims to give them an understanding of their current
 abilities, raise students’ awareness of differences between
 the education systems in Britain and their own country, and
 bridge the culture gap.

Welfare

 way UKLC views and ensures the wellbeing of
 its students.

       All students are given an induction lesson highlighting the rules
       for that centre

       All group leaders are given an induction talk when they arrive
       which details their responsibilities towards their group but also as
       an adult at a residential centre

       We work with group leaders to ensure their students have a safe
       and enjoyable stay, taking full responsibility for students when
                                                                              Students on excursion
