The focus of the full-time ESOL course is on improving English language skills in order to prepare learners for living, working and studying in the UK or using English as an international means of communication.
Students are encouraged to take an active role in the learning process both in the classroom and beyond. Learners progress towards Cambridge ESOL exams, IELTS and Scottish Qualifications Authority Units as appropriate to their level.
ESOL courses exploit a wide range of paper-based and electronic materials and resources including a virtual learning environment. There is a lively Cultural Programme of social events and visits to places of cultural and historical interest. All students have access to the internet and the full range of Student Services including the libraries, accommodation service and Students’ Association.
