Course aims and areas

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System and is accepted by thousands of institutions worldwide. It is recognised internationally by universities, workplaces and governments as an assessment of your English Language proficiency.

Our IELTS examination preparation courses focus on exam techniques and strategies to help you achieve the best possible grade you can achieve. We help you to understand the content of each part of the IELTS test: listening, reading, writing and speaking. You will practise the different types of questions that you may be asked in each part and we will check your progress with regular mock exams and tutorials.

It is suitable if you are planning to attend an academic or vocational course at any UK institution, or if you plan to apply for an English-speaking university for an undergraduate or postgraduate course.

Part-time and summer intensive options are also available.
