UK’s most well-established independent colleges, will be offering a range of refreshingly distinctive summer courses. Building on the College’s reputation for both academic excellence and mind-blowing creativity we are offering 4 different courses in very small classes where international visitors will study and socialise alongside local students. Rochester Independent College is in Kent, just south east of London. Kent is known as the garden of England but is also close to great beaches and home to historic cathedral cities. It’s a tourist hotspot with Lonely Planet placing it on a list of Europe’s best holiday destinations and Medway bidding to be City of Culture in 2025. Rochester itself is a small town, with a rich heritage and a flourishing contemporary arts scene. Rochester offers a quieter life than London, close to areas of outstanding natural beauty like the North Downs, yet within easy reach of all the facilities the capital city has to offer. Regular trains run from Rochester to London in just under 40 minutes and Ebbsfleet for Paris and Brussels on the Eurostar is just 10 minutes away. Rochester is famous for its connections with Charles Dickens and with a magnificent Norman cathedral and a striking castle that can be viewed from RIC’s classrooms and the Halls of Residence bedrooms.   Academic and Creative
