Each accommodation house has a ‘parent’ or supervisor who students meet with every day. If your child needs to talk to someone about any issue they have, their house ‘parent’ is always there to listen, as are all International House staff members.
Student life is as much about making new friends as it is about learning. At IH London, we understand the importance of taking your friendships, and new language skills, out of the classroom and into the real world.
Each day there’s a different activity to enjoy. It might be a night out at a pub, club, bar or restaurant or a visit to one of London’s many museums, galleries, theatres or cinemas. For the more energetic, it could be a walking tour of famous sights, a night out bowling or an organised game of football.
