Academic Year Programme Enrol now


Our Academic Year programme enables students to significantly improve their English level, study skills and their chances of entering a UK university.

This course is very flexible with a range of different options, and is always tailored to the needs of the student. For example, if a student already has a good level of English and wants to focus on academic skills (perhaps Writing or IELTS), these study elements will be built into the student’s individual programme.

Students starting the Academic Year programme at B1 level or below will be encouraged to study General English in the mornings and afternoons for the first term, with the option of including some study skills as part of the morning programme.

Key facts

On our Academic Year course, you will:

  • Progress to a high level in all areas of English including grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, pronunciation, reading and writing
  • Prepare for the exams you need if you plan to go to an English-speaking college or university
  • Join any of our full-time standard courses as part of your Academic Year programme at no extra cost

Age range

The minimum age is 16. Most of our Academic Year students are 16 – 19.

Course length

The Academic Year programme is either:

  • 9 months or
  • 6 months

It may also be possible to study for periods between 6 and 9 months, if required: please contact us with specific dates.

Course in detail

All students in our Academic Year course will substantially improve their English language knowledge and communication skills. There are 6 options, and students can switch from any option to any other option(s) during the course, with guidance from their tutors or the school Academic team.

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    my name is Theresa Schenk and I become an Au Pair in Britain for the periode of October 2019 till March/April 2020. For that time I´m looking for an english course with 10 hours per week. Your course "Academic Year" sounds great but I think that course had more than 10 hours per week.
    Becouse of that I hope you can offer me a course similar to the "Academic Year -Course" but with 10 hours.

    Kind regards,
    thank you in advance and I hope I hear from you

    I am interested to study english to increase my chance of acceptance in Oxford University postgraduate studies. But I amn't sure which course is suitable for me and which one should I apply for?

    My best wishes

  • Dear Abdulaziz,
    Thank you for your message.
    If you would like to study a Postgraduate degree at Oxford University, you must first choose your desired course and look at the entry requirements (i.e. the IELTS score you require).
    We offer an IELTS Preparation course which runs for 4 weeks full time from Monday to Friday, 09:30 – 13:35. The cost of this is 380 GBP per week and there is also a registration fee of 65 GBP. Students who would like to enrol onto this course are asked to take our English test first, as the minimum level to join the course is B2. Your level must also match the IELTS score that you require to enrol at Oxford University.
    If your English level is lower than the score you require in IELTS, we recommend you study General English first, to improve your level.
    Kind regards

    from Oxford, UK
