Intensive English

You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.

Intensive English courses are designed to provide a fast paced and efficient language-learning environment, which allows students to more quickly continue their studies. They can take their necessary degree courses while simultaneously completing language courses.
