What are IELTS Exam Preparation Courses?
We know that IELTS opens the door to many other courses in the UK for students who are not native English speakers. Our IELTS Preparation Courses provide the essential English skills and strategies required to take the IELTS exam with confidence.
We make sure that students get the opportunity to practice in the areas that need improvement because we understand that getting a good grade at IELTS is important to our students.
Our experienced English language teachers support students through this process, working closely to develop the skills required and prepare for IELTS examination success.
Many of the students taking our IELTS course plan to study at a UK universities. We have partnerships with many UK universities, including Oxford Brookes University, and our Academic team is always on hand to provide in-depth help and advice to students aiming to move on to Foundation, Undergraduate or Postgraduate courses.
