All of our students will be staying at ISC Campus next to the University of Alicante and just a few steps away from where they will have their Spanish lessons. Students will spend a major part of the time during their stay there, that's why its facilities and amenities are of great interest to us.

Spanish people are fun, extroverted and have a very cheerful demeanour - Spanish culture and society will definitely surprise eager campers; What better way to discover the culture than immersing yourself in it whilst learning an amazing language!
Located in the centre of the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid is a fascinating city bursting with history, culture and incredible secrets, all of which our campers get to discover during our trip to the capital!
Egypt, Greece and Rome to name just a few. Ancient civilizations is the theme for the rides at Terra Mítica - an amusement park in Alicante where campers can have fun and learn about ancient history at the same time. However, the adventure doesn't end there! Campers will also be able to discover some of the most exotic animals that the world has to offer at Mundomar, where swimming with dolphins, being photographed with penguins and seeing sea lions and owls in reconstructed habitats are all part of the experience.

ISC staff will be waiting at the airport for the students and will take them to the ISC Campus.
If a student requires an individual transfer from the airport (e.g. if they take a different flight or if they are travelling on their own), they will also be picked up by an ISC group leader.
Our monitors make the trips to and from the airport to pick up the students in our private vans and buses or we use experienced transport companies that we are in partnership with. From the arrival at Alicante airport, students do not have to worry about anything apart from learning and enjoying their stay, we deal with everything else.
