The NILE Online Social and Cultural Programme

At NILE we believe there is more to learning than burying your head in a textbook. That’s why when you study with NILE, we provide opportunities for you to enhance your learning experience.

Face-to-face Courses

Organised events and weekend excursions not only aim to give you an insight into British - and Norwich - culture but they are also great opportunities to meet new friends.

Norwich and beyond

Although it offers so much on its own, Norwich, situated in the county of Norfolk, has some excellent transport links to a variety of nearby places of interest which you could visit during your stay. These include, but are not limited to: seaside towns along the Norfolk coast less than an hour away; stately homes such as the Queen’s estate in Sandringham; the Norfolk Broads for a scenic boat trip, as well as London which is only 2 hours away by train, and the historical university city of Cambridge.

The NILE Social and Cultural Programme seeks to provide you with a taste of British - and Norwich - culture. In fact, we promise that by the end of your stay, you will begin to understand why Norwich, a city that you might not even have heard of before studying with NILE, is one of the UK’s hidden gems that keeps our trainers and alumni coming back year after year.

Please see below an example of the kind of social programme you could experience whilst studying at NILE.
