Summer Courses in 2021

We had hoped that travel restrictions would be relaxed in time for us to run summer courses in July and August this year.

Due to the complexity of the shifting situation and the fact that families need certainty, it is with a heavy heart that all face-to-face summer courses are cancelled for 2021. The welfare of students and staff remains our number one priority.

We are running Summer Online Courses and we are looking forward to welcoming students onto our Spring and Summer Courses in 2022.

English for Examinations helps you prepare for an English language exam such as IELTS or Cambridge examinations (FCE, CAE)

This course is designed to prepare you for these examinations, giving you the best possible chance of future success in your academic and working life.

Course provision and the curriculum are excellent and are successful in promoting progression and in meeting the students’ needs – ISI PFE March 2019
