IELTS Exam Preparation Courses in Eastbourne, England

The IELTS course is designed to give you complete and careful preparation for all aspects of the academic module of IELTS.

It is an intensive 4-week course - you study Monday to Friday, mornings and afternoons, with the IELTS exam on the Saturday after the course. Your teachers will be experienced in teaching IELTS preparation courses. Some of them are also IELTS examiners.

You can choose to study 25 or 30 lessons per week (18.75 or 22.5 hours). There is a core of 25 lessons per week of IELTS preparation. If you choose the 30 lesson option, for the extra 5 lessons you will study on one of our electives. For example, if you felt that you need to work more on speaking, you could choose our 'speaking, pronunciation and listening' elective. Alternatively, you may wish to focus on a new skill like 'English for Work'.  

The course includes:

  • guidance and practice in all 4 papers of the IELTS exam (reading, writing, listening and speaking)
  • mock examinations under authentic exam conditions
  • regular tutorials with your teacher to give you individual help and study advice
