International House, Cape Town, South Africa

What we like about the school

  • Rooftop terrace

International House (IH)

  • The school is based in a safe, friendly and central area in Cape Town called Sea Point. The school is only 50 min away from the Atlantic Ocean and the famous Sea Point Promenade. Shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, doctors, gym, cinema, all you need, is in close proximity to the school. The different accommodation options are also very close to the school with most of them in walking distance and some of them only a short bus ride away.
    It is very easy to get to all the tourist attractions in Cape Town like the Waterfront, Table Mountain, the city center and Camps Bay.

Accreditations and Quality seals

EduSAPreferential Terms in Case of Visa RefusalUniversity of Cambridge, SAYTC, International House World Organisation, South African Civil Aviation Authority
“IH Cape Town is often referred to as the IH family by many of our students as the atmosphere amongst them is so special and students make friends for life. During their time here they explore all the wonderful sights and join our fun social activities. I also enjoy interacting with them during our monthly student parties and meeting interesting people from all over the world. I am from the UK and visited Cape Town in 1995 as a tourist, fell in love with the country and never left again. 10 years ago we then opened this school in a superb location in Sea Point right by the sea which is definitely a great selling point for us. Our staff and teachers are very dedicated and hard-working and always try to find solutions to any problems that may arise. ”
