Golders Green College (Established 1941)

(EFL Courses for Overseas Students)

Our North London English college started in 1941! We provide high quality English courses for overseas students.

Located in a safe residential area, in the heart of north London, Golders Green is just a 20-minute tube journey to the city centre where many of London’s famous landmarks are, such as the British Museum, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. There are also plenty of theatres, cinemas and restaurants there.

You can find us on Golders Green Road, a vibrant high street with several coffee shops where you can meet up with friends and enjoy your break time. We are located just a few metres to the north of the main road junction. Simply walk up the stairs and you will find our main reception area. Our classes are held in bright classrooms with period windows spread over three floors. In Golders Green you will find a number of different nationalities which bring many diverse cuisines and shops, so you are never too far from your own culture! There is a church close by, a mosque, several synagogues and a Buddhist meditation centre. There are several gyms and leisure centres within walking distance and a couple of tennis clubs in the area, so you are sure to find a recreation that suits you.

It’s often easy to forget you are in London when you have two massive parks just a 10-minute walk from the college: Golders Hill Park and Hampstead Heath. Golders Hill Park’s landscaped grounds contain beautiful plant displays including the peaceful Mediterranean and water gardens, a popular café and a bandstand. Hampstead Heath, which adjoins Golders Hill Park, is one of London’s most popular open spaces – an oasis of calm in a vibrant city.
