  • Top rated school facilities

Centre of English Studies (CES)

The language school Centre of English Studies (CES) was founded in Leeds, England UK in 2002. A city with a proud sporting history, Leeds is an ideal place to learn English - big enough to find plenty to do, small enough to never lose your way. Our school is surrounded by some of the best tourist and cultural attractions in England. Leeds has a large student population - meaning the nightlife is exciting, with some of the best clubs in the world!

The school address is: 9 Park Place, LS1 2RU - Leeds, England UK (see on map)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The accommodation should be as close as possible to the city centre, due to the lack of public transport at night. The accommodation was far from perfect. the family was very nice but English people have a complete different view towards cleaning. Something to take into account.
