Courses Cambridge Preparation – Full Time

Preparation Course for the Cambridge First (FCE), Advanced (CAE) and Proficiency (CPE) Exams

Cambridge Preparation – Full Time


Mornings: Students follow our in-house schemes of work, covering speaking, listening, reading and writing plus pronunciation and vocabulary work. Teachers use their professional expertise to select activities that will most engage and support their students.

Afternoons: Students practise for all papers of the Cambridge Examinations. They will revise key grammar points, develop their standard of writing, recycle vocabulary and hone their examination technique.

These are 10 week courses starting in January, April and September, which end with the students taking the Cambridge Exam in Torquay. Students can join our 10 week course on any week from week 1 to week 7. However, the final 3 weeks leading up to the exam are always closed.

Aims and objectives

Students develop their level of General English and this supports their ability to deal with the Cambridge Examinations in the afternoons. Here they will be familiarised with the components of the examinations.

Progression routes

Success at Cambridge English Examinations can lead to successful applications to University or pre-sessional University courses.
