How do you become a student at LAL Torbay?

All formalities connected with the course, booking, transport, etc. should be arranged in person or by post with the College of Foreign Languages "LEXIS" or with our Agent. After choosing the type of course, accommodation and other services you sign an agreement and transfer the due amount of money in PLN to our "LEXIS" bank account. The enrolment form, a copy of the agreement and a transfer receipt should be sent or faxed to us early enough so that we could receive these two weeks before the beginning of the course (persons from cities other than Warsaw  contact an Agent).

Before departure you will receive from us:

a confirmation of the enrolment on the course with an appropriate letter for the customs officers in the UK - so that you do not have any problems with crossing the border,
the plane ticket - if you are travelling from Warsaw (persons travelling from cities in Poland other than Warsaw contact an Agent),
the confirmation of booking accommodation together with address, phone number and a short characteristic of the host family
