IELTS is an internationally-recognised exam and most students need it to prove their level of English for study at University.

IELTS is often a requirement for university entry. Our IELTS preparation course starts any Monday and is a combination of General English, Exam Focus and Academic Writing lessons. The course will prepare you for undergraduate or postgraduate studies which are taught in English. You will learn to use English with confidence both in your academic studies and socially. Our experienced and professional teachers will develop your exam techniques so that you achieve the best possible result in each section of the exam.

The rate of progress varies depending on student level, ability and determination but on average our IELTS students’ test scores increase by 0.5 in approximately 6.5 weeks. We will provide you with regular examination practice and homework. We also offer information and advice to help you choose and apply for your university course.

Exam dates are available every month at a local test centre. There is an examination entrance fee as below:

  • IELTS (for UKVI): £200.00 - £240.00
