Between 13 and 17 at the time of the course.

No, you need to be able to speak at least a little English. The courses are not suitable for complete beginners.

If you are ill and feel that you need to see a doctor, either your homestay will arrange an appointment with their doctor and will take you there or a member of our staff will take you to the local walk in clinic where you will be able to see a doctor.

Yes, while you are with WEC, you can contact Peter, the Centre Manager day and night on +44 (0) 7598 130579.

We will ask you regularly if you are happy with your homestay. If you are not happy, we will try to resolve the situation but if you are still not happy, we will move you to another homestay if we all agree that this would be best.

Yes you can. All you have to do is tell us your friend’s name on the booking form.

Not much as all the trips and activities are included in the price so you only need money for souvenirs. We think that £50 to £100 each week is more than enough.

Yes, you must arrange or already have medical insurance before the start of the course. If you are visiting the UK from an EU country or Switzerland and you fall ill or have a medical emergency during your stay, you can use a valid EHIC issued by your home country to access emergency healthcare. The EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare, being flown back home, or lost or stolen property, so we strongly suggest that you take out travel insurance which we can also add to your booking.

Yes, of course; it is helpful to hear about everything from the view of someone who has been on a course and you will be able to ask them lots of questions. Just send us an email, tell us which country you are from and we will send you the contact details of some former students who are happy for you to contact them.

The safety of our students is very important to us.

Weymouth and Portland has proved to be a safe area for our courses. We will send you full information about your stay in England before you come to Weymouth, including information about staying safe. We will also go through these points with you on your first day at school and answer any questions you might have.

We have a Safeguarding Policy which details all that the school does to ensure your safety at all times during your stay in England.
