The London Academic Explorer is an elite course taught at the prestigious Guildhouse School in the heart of Bloomsbury.

This is a demanding academic programme, focusing on intercultural communicative success in English, with outcomes focused on the successful communication of group work objectives through the acquisition of presentation skills.
