For students who aim to study at a university or college in an English-speaking country, Study Year is designed to help them to reach the right level of English. We also offer related support: we assist you with applications for further study and help you to register and prepare for the English qualifications you need (e.g. IELTS).
Study Year students receive free additional support, which is not offered to short-term students. You are closely monitored through regular meetings and tutorials with your Study Year Advisor. Tutorials and remedial teaching are provided on a regular basis. We have a Study Year Advisor at each of our premises. These are friendly, competent teachers who teach in the mornings and focus on Study Year support in the afternoons.
You can meet with the Study Year Advisor in the afternoon at no extra charge for any of the following:
The needs of Study Year students can best be met by booking a Study Year package. Typically, this starts with General English (either mornings or full day). Many Study Year students plan to study at an English university, and for these students we would recommend the IELTS or TOEFL course. Exam preparation courses help to keep Study Year students motivated once their English is at a high enough level.
The most suitable Study Year package depends on your budget, needs and length of stay. Our registrar can advise you on the best possible Study Year package.
This course is provided at 7 levels. To find out which level is the most suitable for you, complete the online Placement Test.
