There is always something exciting going on at IH Manchester!

Online social activities are available during the week and an excursion in the Manchester area runs on Saturdays. Social activities help you to quickly and easily make friends. We will also help you to explore Manchester. You can also practise your English outside of the classroom.

We know that everybody doesn’t always like to do the same things, so we always offer a choice of activities.
Participating in social activities helps you to improve your spoken English fluency and increase your vocabulary. Some activities are arranged and accompanied by IH Manchester staff, some are suggested independent activities.
There may be some trips which are not suitable for students aged under 18 and so they will not be able to attend these.
No refund can be given following payment for a social activity.

Trips with “Smile Adventures”

Many of our full day/ half day excursions are organised and supervised by “Smile Adventures”. IH Manchester staff do not usually accompany students on these excursions. Parents of students aged 16/17 will be asked to give permission for their child to attend these excursions, when they book a course.
On the morning of a “Smile Adventures” excursion students are collected from a Manchester city centre meeting point and returned there at the end of the trip. During the excursion, students will be allowed time to independently explore the location they are visiting in small groups, usually for approximately 2 hours. During this time students will not be directly supervised by “Smile Adventures” staff and will be required to return to an agreed meeting point at an agreed time.
