What is an Academic Semester?
An English Academic Semester is a 5-6 month English course that aims to get you from your current level of English up to a very high level of fluency. You can choose between Intensive English and General English course structures, and you can also choose to study specific sections of vocabulary and skills, such as Business English.
Along with regular English courses you will also have several “Structured Study” sessions during the week. These let you learn what you want to learn and reinforce the skills you’ve built up by using selected books, online language exercises and learning software. There is also the option of an unpaid internship, should you meet the language proficiency and visa requirements.
