Academic Year Programme 1

About this course

Our long-term Academic Year Programmes (AYP) offer you a substantial level of flexibility. You can combine different modules and courses to suit your individual requirements. Our Director of Studies, your Academic Mentor and teachers will help design a study path to fully suit your level of English, your academic needs and your learning goals.

Long-term programme students usually begin in our Intensive Course to gain a firm understanding of general English skills. Our new ‘Integrated Learning’ curriculum is based on 21st Century Skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving. Learn more about our modern approach to Integrated Language Learning.

Once you have gained an appropriate level you can take part in our other 20-hour courses, such as our Cambridge and IELTS Examination Preparation courses.

  • Seminars and career guidance – a series of informative seminars on subjects such as CV Preparation, Interview Techniques and Further Study Options.

I have been supported a lot in many ways by my tutor since I started course in this school. Especially when I was struggling with the CV for my internship, he kindly gave a lot of practical advice. I can consult him whenever I am worried about something even if it is small thing.
