The Centre also offers courses in Tourism, Customer Service, Marketing and Business at 3 levels. Students in these classes can take examinations organised by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI). Students can combine these with General English classes to make a full-time course.
University Preparation/ IELTS helps students prepare for study at university level and for the IELTS examination, which is required for admission to most British universities.
The teaching staff take an interest in their students as individuals and work closely with them to help them achieve their aims. Homework is assigned regularly and advice is given on study skills and on how students can learn English outside of the classroom.
The teachers design their courses with the students' interests and needs in mind, and students are regularly surveyed to ensure that they are satisfied with their courses. Mid-term and end-of-term tests are given to measure students' progress. Individual tutorials may be offered to students who need special help.
There are currently over 400 students from all over the world studying in the English Centre for International Students. The Centre is a member of the British Association of State English Language Teaching (BASELT) and is accredited by the British Council.
The teachers at the Centre are well-qualified, with extensive experience of working with students of different nationalities and abilities. There is a friendly, informal atmosphere in the classes, with a variety of activities designed to help the students improve their skills and develop confidence.
The teaching and office staff provide advice on living in England, accommodation and studying at British universities. Help is also given to students with personal problems. The staff understand and respond to the needs of international students and ensure that they feel welcome.
There is a snack bar, and a study centre provides books, tapes and laptop computers for individual study.
Every term there is a social programme with theatre visits, excursions and other events. An extra fee is charged for some of these events. Our students like the international atmosphere and make friends from around the world.
English Centre students can also study at the Institute Adult Education Centre. Foreign languages and computing are some of the courses on offer. These classes offer English Centre students an opportunity to develop their interests together with native English speakers.
