Helping students to aim higher

Target English International (formerly known as ATC International) was established in 2009 and specialises in the provision of residential junior summer courses for groups of students aged 10 -18.  Our summer schools are based at university & college campuses throughout the UK. We also offer year-round residential courses & mini-stays for closed groups based at the University of Hull. In 2020 we launched our online junior courses which are available all year round for individuals and groups.

Our Mission Statement

At Target, we aim to provide our students with a comfortable and caring setting in the UK to improve their communication in English and develop skills for a more global society. We want our students to leave the course with a better understanding of UK culture and the inspiration to become life-long learners of English.

We want all of our students to leave us not only with great holiday memories that will last a lifetime, but also the feeling that they have really achieved something during their stay. We apply the basic principle of quality and added value for money to every aspect of our provision.

Covid Update (26/05/21)

We are hoping to operate our junior summer school in Hull University campus only this summer (July – September 2021) for any groups travelling from ‘Green List’ countries and are looking forward to welcoming students, group leaders and staff back to the UK. Bath, Lincoln, Preston, Edinburgh, York, Liverpool & Hatfield will not be operating in summer 2021 due to Covid 19, however all our junior centres will reopen for summer 2022. The safety and security of each and every member of our Target Community is always our first priority, but never more so than in these challenging times. We are working closely with our university hosts and other suppliers to ensure that we deliver our programmes in the safest way possible. We are following the guidance from the UK government and incorporating actions to tackle Covid 19 in all our risk assessments. Please download our latest Covid Policy pdf for more information.
