Τhe institution Applied Language Studies House has an academic structure and pioneering organisation at both a national and international level. It covers a wide range of English language education based on three pillars: Student and Teacher training, Research Centre with a scientific council that consists of renowned educators and researchers from the USA, the UK, the EU and Australia and a Publishing House that fosters and presents educators’ and researchers’ work and research findings.
In 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, our TQ candidate and EFL student numbers increased dramatically which allowed us to set up our branch in Thessaloniki, Greece (GR092) and our Applied Language Studies House Ltd in Birmingham, UK.
Our vision is the provision of high-quality education with a view to meeting the needs of the labour market as well as actively contributing towards the development of research projects and postgraduate education.
We are committed to equipping our students and trainees with the necessary knowledge, skills and learning experience that will assist them in achieving their greatest potential in order to adapt and adjust to a diverse and ever changing society and labour market.
