Don't go to british study centre
kaplan and OISE seem to be good- they are good places to work and that usually means good places to study.
avoid flashy schools which advertise their location, facilities and tourist outings

my friend went to kings college and loved it- might be a bit pricy though because it does activities

Thanks!

I have heard mixed reviews about the British Study Centre: a Brazilian friend of mine did a month there and loved it, but my French friend didn't like it very much... It's one of the (slightly) cheaper language schools, so I guess that might mean it's not as good as the most expensive ones.

HI.
I'm going to Oxford this April and this will be my first trip in England.
But I worry about using Underground train and transportation there,
Is it hard to travel around there by Bus or Underground train?
What things can do and cannot do in UK?
Like in Japan they not allow to use phone on the train. :|

well, If anyone can suggest me more I'd appreciate it^^a. Or can guide little things about Oxford and London.
Thank you so much!

Peter Ingram , Reading, GBR, 2 months ago

There is no underground in Oxford :P Only in London. Infact transport in the UK in my opinion is kinda bad (London excluded). Your best to look into travel arrangements for your trip. I think the only way to get from London to Oxford will be via buss.

OMG LOL , such a shame on me. I didn't do any homework about England yet.
I should start it right now and thank you for telling me anyways haha.
just hope I will not get lost the way to Oxford - -''a
Thank you :)

Oxford is a small city - you could walk about it quite happily. If you want to get from London to Oxford, the Oxford Tube bus service is frequent and reliable, and goes from various places in the middle of London.

Could anyone tell me what would be the best bus to catch from Heathrow Airport to Oxford?

Zsuzsi Mayer , Oxford, GBR, 2 months ago

Airline is very reliable, they also provide good connection between Oxford and two of the Heathrow terminals with service running in every hour or so.
http://airline.oxfordbus.co.uk/timetables/airline-heathrow
You can book tickets online and they are open (+/- 1 or 2 hours) which means that you can catch an other service if you arrive earlier or your flight is delayed.

WAIJAY , Tauranga, NZL, 2 months ago

Thank you Zsuzsi that is very useful.

Chloe Evans , Oxford, GBR, 2 months ago

The airline bus, stand 10 outside arrivals at Heathrow, it goes directly to Oxford's bus station, Gloucester Green :)

Hey Vicky,

There is a direct national express bus 757 which takes about 3-4 hours for around £30 but it isnt very frequent. If you didnt want to get a train for the whole way, you can get a stansted express into London and then get a x90 or oxford tube from london to oxford
