24 students from the school in Hat Yai, Thailand, travelled over 6,000 miles to study in Hastings, learning English and getting creative in the art and design studios.
During their 4 week stay, the students were given 15 hours of English tuition a week, and then able to enjoy 6 hours of Art and Design, trying their hand at jewellery making, painting and ceramics.
While they were here, the students also arranged trips to London and Brighton, and explored Hastings with their host families, giving them a good opportunity to practice their English.
This is the fourth group of students from Saengthang Vitthaya School to visit and study at Sussex Coast College. Another two groups of students will visit the South East of England over the coming years as the relationship between the two organisations begins to flourish.
Jeremy Oughton, Head of International Business Development at Sussex Coast College said: “Students from Seangthang Vitthaya school have been visiting Sussex Coast College Hastings for 3 years and always get involved within the community, whether it is joining in with sporting activities or going along to local festivals. It gives the students plenty of time and opportunity to practice their English and build their confidence, and experience the culture and lifestyle of the UK.”
Sussex Coast College offers a wide range of English courses and exam preparation courses for students from all over the world; including General English, IELTS Preparation, Cambridge examination courses and an International Foundation Year (IFY). All courses run throughout the year with flexible start dates and times.
