Being in the campus you will have covered all your basic needs; meals(full course), housekeeping, laundry, internet access.
Every campus, offer 24-hour security guard system to ensure students safety.
Courses without accomodation

What is a visa?
A visa is an official permit to enter a country, which you may need to get if you want to study at one of our language centers.
The visa is placed in the passport or travel document. With a valid visa, entry to the country of choice is normally not refused unless circumstances have changed or false information has been given on application for the visa.
What can we do for your visa?
We would like to give you some guidance on visa and other related information when you consider studying at one of our schools. While we try to ensure that all this information is accurate and up-to-date, information should always be checked with the country’s immigration agency and, in line with our terms and conditions, ZENMA will not accept any responsibility if a student travels without a correct visa.
We recommend having at least a 60 days gap between a visa application and the start of the course, as the application process takes a different amount of time depending upon the particular embassy.
In your budget you should always include tuition fees, leisure activities, books and study materials, health insurance, the flight, and visa fees.
