About this course
These classes are designed for students who need English to study at university. These include learning most frequently used academic words and subject specific vocabulary as required. You will learn how to listen and take notes in lectures, write academic essays and give presentations. Formal academic writing conventions are taught, including correct use of language and expressions, citing and referencing of sources.
Teachers follow a course book for part of the time but also base a lot of the lessons on your needs. Tutorials help inform our experienced teachers what you prefer and need from the course. You will be given as much homework as you like and a test every Monday so you can see your progress.
You must be 16 years-old or over at the time of registration. You should take our English placement and must be B1 Level of the Common European Framework Reference (CEFR) to start the course. You may need a Student Visitor Visa depending on which country you come from.
