Preparation Course for the IELTS Exam  

IELTS Course 

Our IELTS course is extremely flexible, running all year with students able to join on almost any Monday. Students join the General English course for 15 hours in the mornings and take 8 hours of intensive IELTS preparation in the afternoons. This preparation will focus on the skills needed for each part of the exam and typically students should be able to improve their IELTS score after a 10 week course. IELTS exams are held locally approximately 3 times a month.

What is IELTS and Why Take it? 

IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing System. 
IELTS is particularly recommended for long stay students intending to go on to further and higher education in English speaking countries. 
IELTS is accepted by almost all British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand colleges and universities. It is also increasingly recognised in North American academic institutions as well as many professional organisations such as the UK General Medical Council and the UK Ministry of Defence.  
Grades are banded on a scale of 1-9 and the majority of universities are looking for at least 6/7 for entry to a degree programme. Foundation courses require a lower grade of at least 4.5. 

This course includes... 

Individual attention 
Course materials 
Classes as usual on all public holidays  
TIS Certificate at the end of your course
