Upon arrival, new students receive the KKCL welcome pack before being taken on an induction tour of the college. They are also informed about the social activities, welfare and support available.
For example, we can help with:
- Finding accommodation
- Registering with a doctor (NHS)
- Registering for National Insurance
- Opening a UK bank account
- Finding work (where to look for jobs, working rights etc.)
- Using local libraries or buying/ordering books
- Computer-Based Exams and external exam registration

Individuals can apply to study General English under a Student Visitor Visa for up to 11 months.

We know living in a foreign country can be difficult, so we do our best to make our students as comfortable as possible. Our staff speak many different languages – including Portuguese, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Urdu – and are glad to help in every way they can.
We have a cafeteria serving food and drinks, a lounge area, study lounge, an IT lab and Wi-Fi covering the entire building.
We are committed to equal opportunities and wish to maintain a friendly community spirit within the college. We always have a first-aid trained staff member on hand, as well as at least one fire safety officer in the building at a time. Our teachers have completed safeguarding and welfare courses.
The college is in a listed building and we currently do not have full provision for disabled and wheelchair access. We are working towards improvements in this area.
Student Social Programme
Make friends, practise English
All our students come to KKCL to improve their English. With every passing week they will grow in confidence, communicate more effectively and get used to using English as their first language.
Still, what good are these new language skills without taking them outside of the classroom and into the real world? That’s where the KKCL Social Slate comes in!
Every week our social programme has an exciting range of activities for students to try, such as:
- Cultural visits
- Sightseeing trips
- Parties & music events
- Pub quizzes
- Creative workshops
- Weekend day-trips outside London
Social Slate Calendar
Our monthly Social Slate calendar has information about all our organised trips and events for the month as well as additional offers on London attractions such as West End shows. You can find the latest calendar information around the school, on our reception TV and on our Social Programme page. You can also head over to our Facebook page.
We are sure that all students will find something to enjoy in our social programme – perhaps they will even discover a new interest.
