What our students said about Cambridge

Rating: 4/5


Small but charming city with things to do. I imagine that for very long periods, 5-6 months it is too small for you but you always have the train to escape to another city.


Rating: 4/5


Everything was fine but many Chinese tourists. I thought 'There is a China Town near King's college.'

Friendly atmosphere
Unilateral transfer fees have been uncommon within the EU since January 2018, therefore delayed receipt of payment. The school, for its part, will not reveal the address of the accommodation until two days before the start of the course, despite the advance payment. Very uncomfortable when travelling abroad! Better: add the transaction fees to the total price from the outset, because the banks have to act according to the law - even after Brexit.

The knowledge of the English language, the ability to convey, teaching language and the British culture, which is an important part of it all.
It is important that LSI Cambridge maintains the installation of ventilation systems in the classrooms so that adequate air change is ensured. According to LSI, there was a process in progress regarding the lack of ventilation.
