Weekly Course Structure
We have a lot to cover in 1 week at Project London and our Student Coordinators are experienced project managers to ensure we cover all the content.
Our students share single-gender dormitory style rooms. Students normally share with 3-4 other students as you would expect for any school trip. Our staff also stay at the same accommodation and we always have a female member of staff on duty at night. Breakfast and dinner are included each day.
Student Social Activities
Whilst learning is our main focus, we also want to ensure students make the most of their time in London and our team arrange great social activities for some of the evenings the students are with us, such as:
Tour of London
Trips to local restaurants
An evening at Covent Garden
Escape room challenge
Trip to a West End theatre show
Our projects typically fill up around 4-5 months in advance so early booking is required. If you are a school group then please see our Group Trips page.
