The Place to Learn English

For nearly 55 years students have come to Melton College to learn English in York. The College is in a residential part of the City, away from the crowded shopping area, it is the only IELTS Centre in York. We are also a Cambridge ESOL exam centre. We have a range of courses for students of all ages and abilities. We provide homestay accommodation and offer support for those who prefer self-catering. Our Student Services staff are committed to helping you get the most out of your time with us.

We aim to help our students communicate. We do this by providing a caring environment where we know our students needs. We do this by celebrating our, history, our size and our location; making the most of what we can offer.

We have general English courses, adult and junior vacation courses and courses for the over 40’s, often with special additional programmes.

At Melton College we have the qualifications and experience to help you make the most of your time in England. In addition to classroom-based lessons, we arrange a variety of social events, excursions, activities and accompanied visits to places of interest in York. Melton College is in a carefully converted Victorian building with extensive private landscaped grounds, yet it is only a short walk from the heart of York.

Over the years we have developed our building and grounds to suit the changing needs of our students. In our beautiful garden students can study in peace, play tennis, basketball and table-tennis or just relax! We make use of our large terrace for barbecues and other social activities.

The College has superbly equipped classrooms, a lecture theatre, a library, a computer room, common rooms, conservatories, a self-access centre, a café, and free Wi-Fi access.


All this is in one building, spacious, safe and secure!
