IELTS

The best way to prepare for your examination

Course content summary

We offer several ways of preparing for IELTS:
  • An intensive six-week preparation course. This course takes place 4 times per year.
  • An IELTS Combination Course. Many people choose to take this as part of an intensive General English course, but it can also be a part of any combination course, such as our Communicating Effectively in English or Young Business English courses. This course is designed to prepare candidates for the Cambridge IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination. IELTS is recognised as an entrance requirement by British, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian universities and for secondary, vocational and training programmes.

IELTS is available in two formats – Academic and General Training. This course prepares students for the Academic Training Modules, which assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train at an undergraduate or postgraduate level.
