Program Description

The English Language training is conducted by Swansea University's English Language Training Services (ELTS).

Are there any English test exemptions?

Please note that where appropriate (i.e. you have obtained the relevant score) The College will continue to exempt the need for IELTS from students who have taken local examinations in English such as WAEC, KSCE, ICSE, HKDSE, A-level, IB, SPM and STPM (including forecast results) etc. and to exempt students who can demonstrate where they have been taught through the medium of English.

ELTS Mission Statement

At ELTS, we pride ourselves on our professional, high-quality English language training and offer a variety of EFL, EAP, and ESP programmes, as well as Cambridge CELTA teacher training courses. Whilst our primary concern is linguistic development, the pastoral care of our students is always at the centre of what we do, too.
