Learn English in the lively district of Coal Harbour, in the heart of Vancouver and only a stone's throw away from the seafront. Close to Granville Street and Robson Street, our partner school is housed in a modern building. There are 17 comfortable and bright classrooms, a computer room with free Internet and WiFi access, which also contains a library. Between or after classes, you can meet your friends in the student lounge. Snacks and hot meals are served daily at reasonable prices.
At St Giles we offer a complete package ensuring you have everything you need for a successful and enjoyable period of study. We offer you a wide choice of accommodation options for all needs and budgets, transfers to and from our centres, social activities and comprehensive insurance.
Support and Welfare: Our staff are here to help and support you from the moment you arrive in our schools, to the day you return home. We have welfare officers in every centre to ensure your safety and well-being, while our Academic Counsellors will help you with your studies and can advise you on your future career or educational life.
We also have dedicated Child Protection Officers who are responsible for students under the age of 18. You will also receive a 24-hour telephone number for use outside school hours.
Social Programme: Our social and excursion programmes are designed to help you have fun, make friends, practise your English, and explore the city and country you are living in. At each year-round school there is an Activity Organiser who will arrange afternoon, evening and weekend activities.
You can choose from local weekday activities and sports, a range of full-day weekend excursions, as well as mini-breaks over the weekend. There will be at least five events each week.
Vancouver will give anyone just what they want: the wide range of shops and select cafés in Robson Street, the kingdom of trendy nightclubs in Granville Street and nature just around the corner in Stanley Park or on the beautiful English Bay and Sunset Beach. Shopping, gastronomy, night life, sport? How could you get bored? And with Whistler, Vancouver Island, Seattle and the Canadian Rockies so close by for weekend excursions, everyone will find their happiness. Besides, our partner school offers a weekly social program which will enable you to discover Vancouver and its roundabouts whilst getting to know your fellow students.
