Airport Transfers

Please ensure that the airport arrival information is sent to EC at least 7 days prior to arrival. If EC do not receive this information, transfers and room availability upon arrival cannot be guaranteed.

Student Arrivals

EC airport representatives meet and greet all students arriving to join the programme in the arrival lounge at the airport. The airport representatives will check that the students have collected their luggage and attend to any needs the students may have at the time. When all the students have arrived, they are accompanied to their transport and driven to the residence. Students must be prepared to wait for some time at the airport accompanied by the airport representatives until their transport is ready to depart.

In the case of lost luggage, it is very important that the student or group leader informs the EC representative BEFORE reporting the luggage missing. If they do not, our airport representative will not realise that the students have arrived and may conclude that the student/group was not on the flight. Normally the airport can retrieve lost luggage within 72 hours and will deliver it to the student's accommodation.


Summer Camp students attend the school on campus. Students on the Day Programme will be picked up by a private EC school bus from the EC adult centre in St. Julian's and will be taken to school and back.

EC staff

EC social leaders provide 24 hour care. EC leaders undergo vigorous in-house training and are provided at a ratio of 1 social leader per 10 students.

First Day

On the first day, all students sit a placement test which placement test assesses students in listening, reading, writing and use of English allowing academic staff to place students in the relevant group for their ability.

Welcome Pack

Students will receive a Welcome Pack containing a student handbook with useful information, emergency numbers, timetable, safety instructions and school rules.


The collection of a deposit from all students occurs on the first day at camp. The deposit of €50 is used in the case of any damage caused by the student or for medical reasons. Any unused balance of the deposit will be refunded to the students on the day of departure.
