Additional Courses, Activities, Tuition, Exams & Options for Families
We offer a range of other services that are not included in our Summer School’s classic Residential English Language Course package.
These additional activities are only available as additional services for students (or their parents or brothers/sisters) who enrol on our main Residential English Language Course and there will be additional costs for each of these.
Please see the fees page or get in touch for fees and further information.
Private English Tuition – an extra intensive Course for individuals
Students have the option to study 1-to-1 in the afternoons or evenings instead of taking part in a scheduled activity session. The 1-to-1 sessions allow our students to work directly with one of our teachers and to focus on specific areas of their English learning such as: English grammar or English conversation or exam preparation.
These additional sessions can be booked in blocks of 3 hours, 6 hours or 9 hours during the enrolment process or after arriving at Hurst.

"We spent two wonderful weeks in Hurst and everything went really well with the experienced academic staff in terms of language education. MC was well organised in creating extensive and fun activities every day and able to make my students' days more colourful with the energetic and friendly activity leaders."
Günes – Group Leader from Turkey
"Our daughter had spent 14 days in your summer school. She was so happy there and she liked it very very much. She was even sad to come home, because she missed her new friends and the school…and everything. I want to thank you so much for what you do for all these young people. It’s such a good organisation, you have my great respect and my congratulations."
Odile and Robert – parents of Caroline, student
"My school has sent our students almost every year since 1989. I like MC because they take good care of us. All the students who took part in MC say that they had a wonderful experience there. The staff always care about the students’ safety. I think it is a warm and comfortable atmosphere to experience summer courses."
Noriko – Group Leader from Japan
"I wanted to say thank you to everyone that I met at the school, because I had a great time this two weeks and I have never met so many nice people at the same time."
