2016 is upon us and so are all our fun spring projects! We're expecting plenty of students and teachers and want to give everyone the best experience possible. Every month we publish news and updates regarding deadlines, events or changes to our organisation. We believe in transparency, and this way you’re less likely to miss out on information about European mobility, Erasmus+ funds, our Internship and Teacher Development Programmes and how to make the most of your project. Do you have any queries about our programmes, accommodation or public transport? Please contact us or post a comment below.

3. British values

From now on, ADC, along with all language schools in Britain, will implement policies to prevent radicalisation and extremism in the UK. We will inform all arriving students of British values, such as personal freedom, tolerance and free speech. All our staff will be trained on the subject, which will form part of the induction (for new students and teachers) on the first day of arrival to ADC. We take this matter seriously and hope to be at the forefront of working towards an open and tolerant European community. 
4. What's happening in London?
