Online IELTS preparation classes

The Language Centre will offer online IELTS preparation courses at two levels. They are designed to provide practice in each of the four skills tested, as well as the opportunity to develop the skills and techniques that will let you show your best when you take the IELTS test. The classes will be run live online, and spaces in each class will be limited.

It would be an advantage for students on both courses to have taken the IELTS examinations previously.
