The first floor building has recently been refurbished to a very high standard providing students with light, spacious classrooms, a well-equipped learning resources centre and common room.
The school is located in Oxford Street, the main shopping street in London, and one of the most famous streets in the world. This central location makes it easy for students to explore the many shops, restaurants and places of interest that are to be found nearby.
Living in London with a host family enables students to see and experience a fashionable city from the perspective of a Londoner. Diamond College helps its students to make the most of their time in London through the careful selection of friendly, welcoming host families and through the ‘London Experience’, an exciting and varied programme of cultural and leisure activities, all, of course, conducted in English and aimed at helping students to discover the city and its main attractions.
Host families offer their students ‘a home from home’ where they feel relaxed, welcome, and secure. The hosts are welcoming and above all genuinely interested in receiving students and helping them to develop fluency in English. Moreover, the student receives a unique insight into British life and customs.
