Intensive IELTS Preparation Programme

Learn about the course below

We’re planning to teach through a flexible combination of online and face to face learning as we start the new academic year. If you’re thinking about starting in autumn 2020, there’s more detail on how we’ll deliver your course below, and in particular on the ‘Teaching’ tab under ‘Teaching and learning – changes for students in 2020’.

Our exciting course will prepare you for all aspects of the IELTS test and ensure that your chances of success at the exam are maximised. Class sizes are limited to 16 students to ensure you have plenty of opportunities to make contributions in class and get the individual support you need. The course is aimed at helping you achieve the grade you need to gain entry into Middlesex University, or to meet other life ambitions.

Why study the Intensive IELTS Preparation Programme at Middlesex University?

The aim of this exciting course is to prepare you to take the IELTS test and increase your understanding of British culture in a fun and friendly way. You will study reading, writing, speaking and listening. During the course, you will also enjoy a range of regular trips and social activities, as well as a dedicated 24-hour residential student support.

When you successfully complete the course, you will get an IELTS certificate and a Middlesex University Certificate of Recognition. This course is mainly suitable for students taking the academic module, but it is useful for the general module as well.
