WHEN CAN I START MY COURSE?
We only run our Professional English courses during the low season (January to May & September to December). Good news is you can start your course any Monday as long as it is not a Bank Holiday here in England. If there is a Bank Holiday* on your first week, you will then start your course on a Tuesday. Our continuous assessment policy allows us to offer you a class that challenges your current English language proficiency all year round. However, you can only join Professional English courses if your level is B1 or above.
* Bank Holidays 2019: 19th April (Good Friday), 22nd April (Easter Monday), 6th May (Early Many bank holiday), 27th May (Spring bank holiday), 26th August (Summer bank holiday).
The school will be closed for the Christmas holidays from 13.12.2019 to 05.01.2020.
It all depends on how many lessons you want to do per week and how long you are going to be here with us.
