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, St Giles Cambridge 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 accept students from 14+ in spring and summer months, please see our Course Dates and Prices brochure for full details. You can take a look at our Guidance Document for Under 16s here.
