General and Intensive English
Carefully designed to build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses, these fully rounded courses will provide you with the progress you need to make. The courses have been developed to ensure that all skill areas in English receive the right degree of focus for every individual in a class.
Our small group sizes, a maximum of 14 students with an average of 8, mean that our trainers have time to get to know each individual and can work with them on language improvement.
How long you study and when you study are matters for you to decide, but we can provide guidance on what is the right programme for you – simply go to Test your English Skills and start the process today.
Academic Semester and Year
We are pleased to offer these great, value for money, long term programmes. These are the right choice for learners who have time to give to really master their English. Available as either 24, 32- or 44-week programmes, with flexi-holiday dates, they are the most economical way to study for an extended period.
The programmes also offer choice – if you are of the right level, you can move to either IELTS preparation or one of our ESP programmes. The academic team will advise you throughout your course of study and help you make the right choice at the right time to suit you.
We have made every effort to provide a time table that will allow people to study when they can and not when we want them to. The General English Programmes below reflect our concern that every learner, no matter what their situation, should have the opportunity to study.
Undoubtedly the most recognised English language qualification in the world, a good score at IELTS is the key to opening the doors to many future paths – academic admission, employment or immigration.
Here at UKCE we are committed to be an IELTS preparation Centre of Excellence. A rolling programme of teacher development focused on IELTS and the latest IELTS examination features, means that we are constantly developing our services for you and helping you to achieve the IELTS score that you need.
IELTS programmes gives you the group and individual training you need to understand this rigorous exam and will help you make the best of your efforts to achieve the result you need.
We believe that you need to start on an IELTS track as soon as possible so we have opened up IELTS classes at lower levels.
Individualised classes with just you and the trainer are a great way to create the programme that is perfect for you. Not only can you look at language areas that suit you best, you can also shape a timetable that suits you down to the ground!
Our students in the past have taken individual classes to help them with such things as exam preparation; preparing for conferences; pronunciation and intonation; improving writing skills for IELTS and job interview practice.
