Activities in Brighton

Brighton is a lively cosmopolitan city with endless possibilities for students and visitors alike. ISE offers various trips and activities to allow students to socialise and enjoy their visit to the UK.

Regular UK excursions to London, Cambridge, Oxford, Scotland & Ireland plus cultural trips to Stonhenge, London’s West End, Bath or Winchester are particular favourites.

Attentive planning also goes into the organisation of social activities, so that the right balance between learning and leisure is achieved. ISE organises excursions and visits to places of cultural and historical interest as well as providing the opportunity to take part in many sporting activities.
