Welcome to


Much more than a General English course!





Show the world how good you are with a University of Cambridge ESOL certificate.

Our English for exam courses are specially designed to develop the skills relevant to each exam. However, the main aim of these courses is to build up your confidence and accuracy in all forms of the language by presenting and practising language appropriate to both group and individual needs.

All our English for Exams programmes will provide you with extensive training in examination techniques and strategies. Regular practice tests will show you exactly where you are in the learning curve and provide you with an idea of what it is like to work under pressure during a Cambridge examination. 

Worried about your speaking? Or your writing perhaps? Then don't! All our teachers are Cambridge-certified and have both the qualifications and experience to give you the proper guidance and help you improve your English-language skills, whatever your needs are.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join the United family!

However, we do recommend A1 students to start their courses in the months of January, April, July or September.

* Bank Holidays 2020 10th April (Good Friday), 13th April (Easter Monday), 8th May (Early Many bank holiday), 25th May (Spring bank holiday), 31st August (Summer bank holiday).
