SCL International College's roots go back to 2013 when it opened as The Stay Academy. In 2017 the company rebranded once again to become Stay Campus London and expanded to include four campuses, each one offering its own flair and personality, yet also providing a consistently safe and supportive environment for international students.
In 2021, the school achieved accreditation to provide private further education to international students, thus the school rebranded to SCL International College. We now proudly offer University Pathway programmes to complement our existing portfolio of English language courses for Young Learners and Adult students.
We know that a city as big as London can seem intimidating for foreign students who might be travelling alone or visiting for the first time. That's why we strive to create a community atmosphere where everyone is welcome and there's always a friendly face to greet you, have a chat with or lend a helping hand.
We are proud to say that students have returned to our school time after time and have recommended us to their family, friends and colleagues. We are also delighted to have been voted a finalist in the industry PIE Awards for two years in a row as Accommodation Provider of the Year in 2020 and for the International Student Living Award in 2021.
SCL is accredited by the British Council for the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language. This means that the quality of our teaching, administration, premises, resources, accommodation and welfare is high.
PFE (Private Further Education) is a division of the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which is an approved Educational Oversight inspection body authorised by the UK Home Office to inspect privately funded further education colleges and English language schools in England and Wales. Our status with PFE further reinforces our legal ability to sponsor international students to come to the UK on a Tier 4 visa in the UK immigration points-based system.
We are a member of English UK, the leading association of language schools in the UK, and we follow its rules of practice.
