I have enjoyed 15 days in the academy and it has been a very enriching experience. Both personal and material resources have been unbeatable. I only have words of thanksShow details » Read more...
I liked the school's method of teaching, the teachers and the location. The only thing I did not like is the composition of the class, because I was the only student over 30 (I am 44 years old), I would have appreciated a class with more possibilities of socialization.Show details » Read more...
Homestays are carefully selected and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying English in Great Yarmouth. These homes are often between 5 - 30 minutes away from the school by public transport. Families usually offer affordable meal plans that allow you to sample the local cuisine. If you have special requests or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance. Your housing starts on the Sunday before your first day of class and ends on the Saturday after your last day of class, unless otherwise noted. Learn more about homestay housing
We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.
If you are studying in the UK for over 11 months, you will receive a reference number called a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) that you need to submit to the UK embassy along with your General Student Visa application. Students who have successfully booked a language course and have paid their fees will receive a CAS from Frisby's. Please note that UK law states that a CAS can only be issued to students who intend to pursue English language studies for over 11 months.
If you are studying in the UK for 11 months or less, you have to apply for a special visitor visa called a Student Visitor Visa. As a student visitor, you will not be able to work part-time while studying. If you plan to study in the UK for 11 months or less, a letter of acceptance will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged £ 15 when you register.
Please note that we do not book flights for our students. If you are researching airfare costs, we recommend using Kayak.com, a search engine that lets you compare flight options from your home country to Great Yarmouth based on your budget, schedule and preferences.
Study abroad worry-free with Language International's health and personal effects insurance coverage. When you book a course with us, you can opt to purchase an international insurance plan that covers not only your health care cost but also loss of your personal belongings. You must book your insurance in advance when you register.
Great Yarmouth is a beautiful seaside town on the East Coast of England. Charles Dickens' Peggotty called Yarmouth lovingly 'Upon the whole, the finest place in the universe' (David Copperfield) - and that's just how we feel about Great Yarmouth. With its 15 miles of wide sandy beaches, Great Yarmouth is one of the most popular and also one of the warmest and driest seaside resorts in England.
Frisby's College is located in the heart of the historic town centre, surrounded by various shops, cafes, and bistros, and only a 10 minute walk from the beach. All classrooms are spacious, light and comfortable. Free wifi.

We don't have an online placement test. The intensive 24 hours is not for beginners because the Friday classes are mixed with the intermediate students, so I can't recommend the student take the 24 hour program. Has the student considered taking the 20 hour program? If after the student arrives, and we think the 24 hour program is suitable, we can add the Friday classes on at that time.
She can take the intensive 20 for the F-1 visa.
