Our IELTS courses

We are running two different IELTS courses:

  • Part-time IELTS Preparation Course Module C (minimum English level B1): 16 April – 4 July 2018
  • Intensive IELTS Preparation Course (minimum English level B2): 30 April – 25 May 2018

Why IELTS?

IELTS is the most widely recognised English test across the globe.

It is accepted as evidence of English language proficiency by over 9,000 organisations in more than 135 countries, for education, immigration and professional purposes.

Why Westminster?

Centrally located in the heart of London next to Oxford Circus, our Regent Street Campus offers well-equipped, modern classrooms and easy access to a broad range of University facilities, making it an ideal choice for both full-time and part-time students.

Our teachers are all professionally qualified English teachers with significant experience of IELTS and they in turn are supported and quality-assured by the course leader, an IELTS expert.

Our teaching

Our courses are delivered in small classes (maximum group size is 14) so that you can benefit from one-to-one attention in the classroom and the rich feedback we provide across all four skills (listening, speaking reading and writing).

We will also create a tailored study plan for you, with specific goals and an explanation how you can achieve them. This is critical to help you understand and apply the more challenging aspects of English language required for higher-order communication of complex ideas across all skills.  

Who is the Intensive IELTS Preparation course for?

This intensive four-week course is designed for students with a minimum English level of B1 who are able to commit to a full-time course for either 2 weeks or 4 weeks.
