This program is perfect for long term student visa holders. It provides the possibility to take up to 2 months of break during their English studies. This break can be used for work and/or travel. The break is perfect for students to “Experience” English in the real world. After the break, students benefit from a strong motivation to “Refresh” and polish their English skills during the second study period.

Additionally student visa holders are able to work for up to 40 hours fortnightly (every 2 weeks) while they study. During the break between courses, there is no restriction to working hours.
