Agape English Language Institute

  • Colombia was the first city in America to be named by Christopher Columbus and it is the capital city of the State of South Carolina. Agape English Language school is situated in downtown Colombia, very close to the University of South Carolina and not far from the social district of 5 Points. It is centrally located within the city and has good transport connections close by to the South Carolina State Museum, the Columbia Museum of Art and Riverbanks Zoo & Garden. Colombia has a subtropical climate, with warm winters and blazing summers, and the surrounding area has interesting vegetation as the River Congaree runs through the State. Escape from the city for a day and visit the Congaree National park, where during late May and early June you can see glow worms light up the skies.

Accreditations and Quality seals

ACCET SEVP<&&TITLE>Preferential Terms in Case of Visa Refusal<&&ENDTITLE>
The majority of our partner schools have agreed to our special exclusive policy by which they will refund any paid tuition fees and will only charge the minimum amount to cover administrative fees, provided that official documentation of this refusal is received at least 3 weeks before your course start date. This amount will never exceed 180€.  Depending on your chosen destination, it might be necessary for you to pay the full cost of your course in advance before visa application support documents can be issued.   In the unpleasant event of your visa application being rejected, our aim is to avoid excessive cancellation fees which might potentially create an unexpected financial burden.
