"A good school to improve English"

Fabrizio Bava, student from Italy

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.

visa

Visa support

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.

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.

School location

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.

Ask a question

"The student's level is "elementary" and is below the minimum required level of "pre-intermediate" required to join the course below. Can you make an exception and accept our student into the 24 hours program? Alternatively, do you have a placement test that we can ask the student to fill out to accurately determine his level?"

Dyan Test, student from USA

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.

Was this helpful? Yes

"I understand that there is no test my student can take. She is not a beginner. She's elementary, but not yet intermediate (which is basically what your requirement pre-intermediate is). She must take the 24 course in order to get the I-20 for the F1 student visa, unfortunately. If she takes the 20 course she wouldn't be able to apply for an F1 student visa."

Dyan Test, student from USA

She can take the intensive 20 for the F-1 visa.
