Academic English

Our academic English courses in London take place at our Westcroft Square Centre, where our Exams Coordinator and University Relations Manager are also based. They are all taught by teachers who are specialised in English for Academic Purposes. This means students have all the support they need to plan their pathway to university under one roof.


English for University 

This is an academic English course for international and EU students preparing for university study in the UK and other English speaking countries.


This course is designed to prepare candidates for the Cambridge IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination - essential for entry to most British universities.

Academic Year Programme

This is a combination of Intensive General English, English For University and IELTS preparation courses which are the most popular courses for students who are preparing for university.

Summer Courses

Read more about our partnership with some London Universities which gives our students the opportunity to combine an English language course with a summer course.

It was a fantastic experience! All staff are so friendly and the classes deserve a round of applause. Social programs were quite fun and useful to understand British culture. The most memorable thing was the lecture!

University application counselling

We often help students through the decision and application process for entry into a British University, either for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.

However, there are also a number of interesting and useful short courses that are delivered by universities. Some students may find these more manageable than a full degree programme, or useful as a to taster life as a student at a British university.

Our University Relations Manager is available to talk to you about your options, and will help you to make an informed decision about your study plans. We will also support you through the application process, ensuring you have the best possible chance of getting onto the right course for you.
