IELTS

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular high stakes English language test for study, work and migration and is recognised by Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada as an accepted test of language ability for university entrance. British universities and other centres of education generally require IELTS level 6.0 or higher as evidence of language ability. The IELTS examinations are held on fixed dates throughout the year and can be taken at the end of the course at an examination centre in Bournemouth.

The IELTS Exam…

Your first day in school

When you arrive at school we give you a warm Europa welcome at 9.30am. It is important you bring your passport or your national identity card, so we can take a copy, and your visa if you have one.

After a level-placement test, you will have a short tour around the school. Afterwards we give you a short talk concerning your lessons i.e. what we expect of you, rules and regulations, social programmes, what you can buy at the school, emergency numbers, tutorial opportunities and self-assessment. We will give you some important information about the local area and you will have the opportunity to ask us any questions.
It is time to take a break at 11.00 am. 
At 11.30am, you are introduced to your teacher and fellow students, and begin your first lesson.
