Europa School of English
Europa School of English & its brand 'IP International Projects'
Europa School is based in Bournemouth on the South Coast of England in a large unique building less than 10 minutes’ walk from the famous Bournemouth beach. Equipped with a spacious bistro exclusively for our guests, we offer a large restaurant for socialising with your fellow students and teachers, perfecting your conversational English whilst enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal. We offer free tea and coffee, and in the summer months half and full-board provision.
IP International Projects has been a brand of Europa School since 2016. It operates as a specialised Young Leaner educator in 5 UK centres in the summer (Bournemouth, Exeter, Teignmouth, Portsmouth and Winchester) one French centre (Biarritz) and a German centre for students to learn either English or German (Hohensolms - close to Frankfurt).
‘More than a language…’ has been our message since we opened the doors for our first guests in 1986. We were all a little younger then!
We know the unique learning opportunities a language programme provides – we’ve all been there ourselves! and our aim is to not only offer formal and informal learning spaces but also to develop intercultural awareness amongst our students and staff.
We have had the pleasure of welcoming more than 200,000 guests since we started. Our well experienced international management and supervision teams are extremely customer focussed, we carefully select and train our staff so they are always helpful, friendly and put the needs of our guests and students first.
Our goals and values: We always aim to maintain and build on our reputation as a school dedicated to providing our clients with a high level of customer service, a welcoming and caring atmosphere in our schools and the chance to meet and learn about other cultures whilst feeling making them feel valued and well looked after.
Each guest is unique and has individual wishes and expectations. We offer a range of attractive destinations to fulfil those wishes and to suit all kinds of different budgets. From the first contact until the end of the trip, we want to ensure that our students are happy and cared for. Students receive well organized and full information before their trip detailing everything they need to know for their language holiday. Our customer care team is always on hand to answer any queries before during and after the students’ stay.
We meet the standards of European language holiday norm (EN 14804). Our language school in the UK is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK and is subject to regular inspections. Our qualified, enthusiastic native-level teachers work with modern equipment and annually revised teaching materials to provide an exciting and interesting curriculum.
We are a member of English UK, the national association of accredited English language centres, and English UK South.
Further we have the certification “We’re Good to go” by The National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland proving that Europa School follows government and industry Covid-19 guidelines.

Learn More Than A Language
Learning a language with us is more than just sitting in a classroom with a textbook, we want to create real world situations where students have a genuine need and desire to communicate in the target language (English, French and German) outside the classroom as well as with their teachers.
To learn new language that will stay with you for life you need to create a real need and desire for the words. The student should want to communicate so much that when the language is ‘dropped’ in front of them they absorb it like a sponge.
For us the joy of learning and improving language is the core of our product, but we consider it equally important that our guests have the opportunity to learn to be open to other cultures. Our social programme and supervision teams are set up in a way that encourages students and staff from different cultural backgrounds to mix and enjoy their time together. We also encourage our younger students to develop their personalities and gain a taste of independence through our carefully thought-through activity and social programme.
Keeping our students and staff safe is the number one priority for us at Europa. We have different levels of supervision depending on the product chosen and the age of the student. Our staff are carefully selected and trained so they are able to take good care of all our students. Parents and guardians can relax in the knowledge that we are taking good care of their child whilst they are with us. We follow the guidelines laid down by Accreditation UK and are regularly inspected to ensure that we are adhering to the rules and regulations regarding the care of students during their stay.
