Travelling From Overseas?

Last year we had children from 60 different countries, including America, Spain, France, Italy, Russia and as far as Japan.

We understand why you are sending your child or teen to XUK. You want them to have fun and be safe in a different country, experiencing different activities and tasting the English culture. You may also want them to improve their English.

We have considerable experience hosting children from abroad. In the past few years we have concentrated in making XUK an international brand and this culminates in having a diverse XUK where children can meet those from different areas and backgrounds.

Language

At XUK your child can improve their English by immersing themselves in the English culture. This way, all children can enjoy what they are doing, make the most of their time and naturally learn the language. They can supplement this with some lessons in the week if they wish. We encourage all children to speak English throughout their time at camp and to mix with other English children and staff over their summer at XUK.

If you and your child would prefer a traditional English school XUK English is the perfect place.

Airport/Train Collection

We organise collection from all major airports and train stations in South West England. We meet your child at the gate and take them to camp where we’ll do everything possible to help them settle in. On departure we take them to the appropriate airport, check them in and make sure they get home safely!

For more information please look at our "Getting to XUK Activity" section.

Trips

Wednesday Trip

We make sure that your child makes the most of their time in England. We include a weekly trip to Warwick, Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon, so if they’re at camp for three weeks they’ll get to all three places! Our Wednesday trip is a great chance for children to have a trip off site, choose what they’d like to do for the day, and get to taste a bit more of the English Culture (and shops!).

London Trip

This optional extra, designed especially for our visitors from abroad, is a chance to see the big sites of London and a West End show. This has been amazingly popular in the past few years and is on offer to our Inters and Teens.

Gold Service

We know that travelling abroad can be expensive. So, we have designed a package to make XUK as affordable as possible. The 'Gold Service' is the easiest, cheapest and best way to book two weeks with all the extras. Have a look at the packages page.

VISA

Non-EU students may require a VISA to enter the UK. Should you require a VISA, we have an ‘Invitation’ letter that we can scan to you. This will include details of our certification and your child’s stay. We will need to have received a scan copy of your child’s passport so we can include the relevant details. If you require, we can also courier this document to you for an additional charge.

Most our non-EU children / students arrive to the UK on a Standard Visitor VISA. Feel free to consult us if you have any questions. However, we are not able to advise on the VISA application process and recommend that you consult the UK Government Website or your local UK embassy.

A big thank you to you and all the staff for a wonderful week at XUK! Our girls arrived safely at Amsterdam airport this afternoon after a great week and were very happy and full of stories.

Thanks for everything!
