Academic English courses

Long and sufficiently intensive courses of academic English will not only help to raise the overall language level, but also to prepare for enrolling in a foreign college or university. The program is focused on the development of valuable academic skills necessary for effective learning: for example, competent and quick note-taking, working with a variety of sources, preparing and conducting presentations, reports, essays, etc. The vocabulaty is greatly expanded - the students are ready for a long and productive studying.

International Foundation Program

Effective preparatory pre-university program, is designed for 1 year. The Foundation helps foreign high school students to quickly fill in knowledge gaps, to improve academic skills and level of thinking, and to improve the level of English. As a rule, the Foundation's diploma is sufficient for admission to the majority of British universities - that's why it is so popular among Russian students (it only takes a year). But notice that the most prestigious and elite universities (for example, the same Cambridge and Oxford) consider the Foundation as an academic inadequate program and require an A-level certificate for enrolling in the desired course.

HNC - Higher National Certificate

In the British educational system, HNC / HND degrees are the first stages of higher education (even before the bachelor's degree): HNC (Higher National Certificate, 1 year) and HND (Higher National Diploma, 2 years).
