Former England Football Captain Joins Kaplan International Colleges Team

Students who take Kaplan English courses in Manchester will enjoy a wide range of activities that help them to make lifelong friends and have a great time.   3    Some examples of social activities include trips to art galleries, reggae nights out, curry nights, museum trips and much more.
