Student Information

Under 18s

Under 18s at St Giles International

Our St Giles year-round centres are primarily designed for students aged 18 and older. Whilst we can welcome students aged 16 and above at all centres, and 14+ at St Giles Eastbourne and St Giles London Highgate, it should be noted that we cannot provide 24-hour supervision. Under 18s will also be required to stay in homestay accommodation.

We ask that parents or guardians of students under 18 read our Notes for Parents and Guardians of students under 18 document before booking their child to study at our centres. This will help you to understand what to expect when your child comes to study with us.

Below you can also find a guide for each centre that students under 18 will be given when they come to study with us. It includes important information such as curfew times and emergency numbers: 

We accept students from the age of 14 at our Eastbourne and London Highgate schools. For more information for students under the age of 16, please read our Under 16's Fact Sheet.
