Our Academic Year Programme (AYP) is ideal for students who wish to improve by more than 1 level and study on an intensive English course for a longer period of time (6 months or more). Perhaps the main goal is to study at university on an English-speaking programme, or to significantly improve the use of English for everyday working life. With commitment from you, our team of professionals will help you to create a realistic learning plan which sets out to achieve your long term English language goals. On this course you will meet with the Director of Studies for a monthly tutorial to receive feedback, advice and to track your progress. If you wish to study at an English-speaking university after your programme, particularly in the UK, we will also help you with this process and can submit your application directly (via our dedicated partners) to over 70 UK universities. Students can expect to receive an offer letter within 2 weeks of submitting the application. Assistance is also provided with CV-writing and the job application process.
Should you choose to take the Academic IELTS or Cambridge FCE or CAE exam in Manchester, the application service and exam fee is included as part of your course fees.
A choice of afternoon modules are available to suit your language learning goals.
Students below a B1 level must join General English and can only join an exam preparation course when they reach a level of B1.
General English, Academic IELTS preparation, Cambridge First: FCE or Cambridge Advanced: CAE.
You can change your module during your course. It is very popular for students to begin their studies with General English and then change to IELTS when a B1 level is reached.
