Course Overview

IELTS 8 is an eight week programme designed to train you for the IELTS examination and help you to achieve your best possible band score.

As part of the course, you will do regular examination practice tests and receive feedback and advice to develop your skills further.

The 200 hour programme consists of 15 hours of taught classes and 10 hours of portfolio-based personalised self-study each week.


Home Student Fee for the IELTS 8 programme is £600.00.

How will it make me more employable?

Assessment will be continuous throughout the programme and feedback will be both oral and written.
