New York City, perhaps the most famous city in the world, provides the perfect backdrop for a course designed to give students an insight into possible career paths ahead of them.
The syllabus combines three core components: classroom theory lessons, practical workshops, and ‘study-in-action’ days that comprise visits to locations related to a student’s chosen subject.
Students stay in high quality accommodation in a pedestrianised area of Wall Street, with the school’s modern classrooms found a five minute walk away.
Léman Manhattan is a prestigious boarding school in the heart of New York City’s financial district. The school is situated 100 yards away from the famous Charging Bull statue, and is located on the top four floors of a 23 storey skyscraper that offers views of the Statue of Liberty from classroom windows.
Accommodation is located a 5 minute walk away, in the pedestrianised zone of Wall Street. Each day, students will walk past iconic locations such as the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall.
Outside of the classroom, students are able to take advantage of Léman’s enviable location in New York City, as celebrated landmarks such as Times Square, the 9/11 Memorial and the Empire State Building are all under 20 minutes away.
There’s a full schedule of activities and social events, as well as access to a sports hall and swimming pool. Included in the Young Professionals Programme, the students are provided with full-board accommodation, Insurance, and Airport transfers. At the end of the course, students will be presented with a personalised report card and a certificate of attendance.
Entrances to attractions on excursions are also included in the course.
