It is possible to extend your course, although during busy periods we recommend you book the entire duration of your intended study to ensure your place. For more information about Extension, just visit our Terms & Conditions here.

Sam’s School of English provides all students a certificate upon completion of their course. We will include the level of your course as well as the duration.

90% of our students are already based in Brighton so therefore we don’t have an accommodation agency available. That said, we will try to help you and do everything that is on our capable hands. Just ask 🙂
