IELTS Preparation – Virtual Groups

The International English Language Testing System exam (IELTS) is an essential qualification needed by anybody whose first language is not English, and who aspires to study at a university or training college where programmes are taught, or who would like to add this well-known qualification to their CV. 

This virtual academic IELTS exam preparation course will prepare you to achieve your best possible result in the exam. This course is delivered in small groups and taught by experienced examiners who have an in-depth understanding of what you need to know to get your best possible score. 

You will focus on all of the skills you need for the exam: listening, reading, writing and speaking, as well as improving your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. You will develop strategies and techniques which prove helpful for the IELTS exam.   

You will also receive support from our University Relations Manager who will be able to answer all of your questions about University and College applications. 

This course is offered at two different times during the day so you can choose the best option for your time zone. If you book online on the weekend, please be aware that you course will be confirmed on Monday morning, and the 6 am session cannot be booked.

This course gives you the opportunity to network with other aspiring academic students and researchers to broaden your international network without having to travel.
