Study Abroad

The International House World Organisation is committed to
excellence in language teaching.
Our family of schools is truly global, and while each school has its own
unique flavour, all are inspired by one common aim: the very highest
standards in language education.
Each school is independently owned and managed and through
affiliating to International House they agree to adhere to our Quality
Management Standards. These define the standards we expect of
our affiliated schools to ensure they are providing the best service
possible to their clients. Adherence to these standards is audited
regularly by IH trained inspectors.

All IH schools are inspected regularly by IHWO to ensure high quality
IH schools are individually owned and each director is dedicated to

offering the best quality courses and services to you and your clients.
Direct contact with the school ensures a prompt response to your
IH schools benefit from being part of a bigger organisation but also
maintain their own individual characteristics, enabling them to tailor
their courses to meet your specific needs.
All IH teachers have a recognised teaching qualification and receive
up-to-date training on a regular basis.
Class sizes are kept small, and with a communicative and student
focused approach students receive individual attention when required.
