Academic Year English Language Programme

Academic Year English Language Programme


The Academic Year Programmes are designed for long-term English language training and are ideal if you plan to study English for 6 months or more. They provide excellent value for money and a flexible approach to your studies. You can choose from any of our standard or intensive course provided you meet the entry requirements. This course is perfect for those who want to study at a UK university or develop their business careers. 

Our minimum age for individuals is 16, but we occasionally accept 15 year olds in General English international classes if they are part of a group with a group leader. We can accept 14 year olds only in closed groups with a group leader.

Please note: Students aged under 18 are only supervised in lessons and on class excursions.

Our average class size is 12, with a maximum of 14 except in July and August when General English and Cambridge English Exam Preparation classes may have up to 16 students. Our 14 student limit may be exceeded by a maximum of 1 student for 1 week in exceptional circumstances.
