IELTS examination course Enrol now


Our 4-week intensive IELTS (International English Language Testing System) courses provide full and thorough preparation for the IELTS exam. The IELTS courses always end on a Friday and in most cases, the IELTS exam is held the following day (Saturday).

With a strong exam focus, our courses guide students through the four different parts, familiarising them with IELTS exam techniques and requirements, so that students know exactly what to expect and are confident of their own abilities when they sit down to start the exam (see Academic profile below for more information).

Many IELTS courses combine IELTS preparation with General English – but this is an unproductive strategy, and the student’s efforts become diluted. Our intensive 4-week courses are far better, enabling students to focus completely on the IELTS exam, and to achieve their full potential in the exam itself.

Students who need to improve their English level should enrol in our General English courses before switching to the IELTS course (for example, 12 weeks General English + 4 weeks IELTS). On average, students need to study in a General English course for 12 weeks to improve their IELTS score by 1 point.

OSE has an international reputation for excellence in examinations. Since we started to run our 4-week IELTS course, 96% of our students have achieved the score they needed. Click here to see a table of our most recent IELTS exam results.

The Oxford IELTS testing centre is 100m from our school.

Universities in the UK

Many of the students taking our IELTS course plan to study at a UK university. 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.

    Dear LSI,
    I have gotten a conditional offer from Oxford and Cambridge, but I need to meet their English requirements, which are overall band of 7.5 and at least 7 in each component. I have taken recently the IELTS exam and I got overall band of 7.5, but unfortunately I got 6.5 in speaking and 6 in writing. I am willing to improve my speaking and writing, and therefore I would like to know about your IELTS preparation course.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you,

  • Guest - Keunho Cho

    I'm Keunho Cho, your student Eunseul Cho's father. I have something to ask.

    My daughter wants to study art&design in the UK university and as I know, she have to study at international foundation program before undergraduate degree.
    For applying international foundation program, she must get minimum 5.5 at IELTS so my daughter and I think about plan to study 4-week IELTS course at OSE.
    Do you think this is good idea? Is her level good for IELTS course? Eunseul has been studying general English course from last September and that course will be ended 3rd March.

    We don't have much time because most of international foundation program will start September. Before that Eunseul must get IELTS point and prepare portfolio of her own art&design work.

    Best wishes.
