IELTS preparation: This is available as a full-time course or as part of a full-time course with English for University, General English or English for Business.

To prepare for your further studies in an English-medium institution, you need to develop your language skills for more than just achieving a good IELTS or TOEFL score. Your first priority in your English-language studies is probably to gain admission into your higher education course. However, it is just as important to improve your English so that you can start your further studies feeling confident and comfortable, and give yourself the best chance of success in your course.
Languages International's English for University courses are organised around practical assignments, doing research, giving presentations, and writing long essays and reports on various topics. The English for University courses run at 3 levels: Lower, Intermediate and Higher. You need to complete the Higher level to manage the language requirements of degree-level study. In addition to class hours, students have at least 3 hours per week of teacher-supervised independent learning in our Learning Centre.
