Pre Arrival and First Day

Your EC Experience starts from the day you book

Before arriving at your EC school

Your EC experience starts long before your first day at school; from the moment you book your course, we'll be there to help you prepare for student life in the best and smoothest possible way.

We know that just the thought of arriving in a new country can be stressful, especially if you are travelling alone for the first time. That is why we are there to guide and support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

At any point during your arrival or stay you can call us on our emergency telephone number (you will be given this number when you book your course). We will make your arrival a straightforward and stress-free experience.
