Morning Lessons

Intensive English for IELTS

You will have 3 hours of intensive English lessons each morning, focusing on the grammar and vocabulary you need for IELTS, as well as improving your skills and building your confidence.

Afternoon Lessons

1. IELTS Skills Classes

In the afternoons, you will have 6 hours of intensive IELTS preparation per week.  These lessons have a more academic focus, and are taught at the English Language Centre. They focus particularly on IELTS reading and writing skills. You will have a complete practice IELTS test in the winter and spring terms, as well as regular half-termly assessments.

2. English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

At CSVPA, you will also have 2 hours of EAP every week to help you prepare for your further or higher education course. You will learn critical thinking skills, how to reflect on and evaluate your work, and learn descriptive, colourful vocabulary to use both in your IELTS and on your next course.

3. Book Club

You will also have a Book Club once a week.  Here you will you improve your reading skills while having fun reading books and discussing them.

4. Portfolio Support

If you still need to develop your portfolio, we can also offer Life Drawing and Visual Studies classes one afternoon a week. These classes will ensure you have enough material in your portfolio before beginning your course at CSVPA.

Additional Support

You will have regular meetings with your personal tutor each week, as well as a monthly meeting with your Course Leader, who will conduct progress tutorials and help you to book your UKVI IELTS test.
