British boarding school short immersion courses at RIC

On an RIC short course adventure international students have the opportunity to experience British boarding school life for one, two or three terms.

The courses give international students an introduction to British culture. Students improve their English and are given a taste of what they can expect if they choose to join RIC in the future. 

Situated only a 37-minute train ride from London, students experience a safe environment, with easy access to one of the world’s most exciting cities.

Unlike programmes run exclusively for international students, visitors on an RIC short course are fully integrated into the day-to-day life of the school, attending lessons and activities alongside British students. Speaking English in every situation is inescapable. 

As RIC only accepts small numbers of short course visitors at any point in the academic year it is possible to tailor the programmes to suit the academic, artistic and cultural interests of prospective students. As well as lessons students will also take part in group activities, sports games and cultural trips throughout Kent and South East England. 

We know it can sometimes be tricky if you are planning to return to your home country after a term or two abroad but don't worry. RIC has lots of experience in co-validating courses you take here so you can slip back into your home system with ease. We'll be happy to work with your school to make sure you study the right subjects and have the right paperwork for when you go home. RIC has welcomed students on one-term immersion students from countries such as Italy, Germany, Mexico and Brazil.
