So, if you need more of a tailored programme either for yourself of for a group of individuals (maybe within your company as part of a training programme) please complete the appropriate Enquiry and Needs Analysis Form below, giving us some basic information on the type of programme you are looking for. This will enable one of our team to get back to you to discuss this further and give you a quote.

We do, of course, offer courses if that is what you are looking for. They run along the lines of the academic year. Nearly 2000 people per year take one of our Modern Foreign Courses. In addition we run an extensive programme of English for Academic Purposes courses including Presessional and Foundation programmes throughout the calendar year.
