With over 40 years of experience in providing language education and support to professionals and students, the International Study and Language Institute (ISLI) has a huge amount of expertise that can benefit your organisation, colleagues and students.


International professional development courses

If you work in education, our professional development courses can help you in the areas of teaching English as a second or foreign language, writing and publishing English, university leadership, and university services.


Visiting Student Programme

If your students are interested in experiencing life in a UK university, we can design a bespoke course for you.

Our courses aim to improve your students' English language skills, introduce them to British culture and give them the opportunity to study specific university subjects.


Homestay hosting

Many of the students on our short courses, such as our professional development courses and the Visiting Student Programme, choose to stay with a local host family.
