Our English for International Students includes classes of learners from a wide range of nationalities. All of our students are 16 years old or above. Full-time (16 hours/week) General English courses range from elementary to advanced level. We also offer full-time IELTS Preparation courses and run part-time evening classes from Basic to Proficiency level as well as Exam Preparation courses.
We are a Cambridge ESOL Open Examination Centre and also a British Council IELTS SELT Centre. The International Office offers support with matters relating to visas (we are a Tier 4 sponsor) accommodation, welfare and living in the UK. The college also provides a counselling service, careers guidance and there is an in-house UCAS Advisor to help with university applications.
EIS courses also have a social programme which helps students get to know each other at different levels and includes trips to London, Bath, Oxford and West Wales, as well as visits to many local places of cultural interest.
We look forward to meeting you at Cardiff and Vale College!
