Course summary

Take an IELTS Preparation Course to boost your English language skills while familiarising yourself with the IELTS exam format and requirements.

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.

Who is the Intensive IELTS Preparation course for?

These intensive courses are designed for students who are able to commit to a full-time course for either two or four weeks. Students attending the four-week course need a minimum level of English of B1, whilst students attending the two-week course need a minimum level of English of B1+ (the upper end of the B1 scale).

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.

Teaching methods

Teaching style

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.

  • 100 hours' face-to-face tuition
