Who we are 

Our story began in 1953 when John Haycraft (CBE) and his wife Brita Haycraft started a school, because they believed in intercultural understanding through language learning. We have continued their mission and changed people’s lives through language for over 65 years. 

International House London is a charitable education trust and we reinvest profits to improve the learning experience for our customers. 


Our accreditation 

Our Medical English courses are accredited by OET (Occupational English Test) and the British Council. Our accreditors assess the standards of management, resources and premises and teaching, and we consistently meet the criteria in all areas.
