“The ESL programme is the programme the improves your English level while granting access to one of the best academic programmes in Romania.”


Did you ever want to study in English, but you felt like you are not prepared enough for such a challenge?

Studying in any language other than your native one is always a challenge, but not impossible. Some might even say that going to college or university and getting a degree is hard enough, so why not apply for a programme in your mother tongue?

We couldn’t agree more, but the hospitality industry is an area that involves a lot of travelling, speaking to people from all over the world and you need to master your English, being the first most spoken language in the world by total number of speakers, according to Babbel Magazine (2018).
