Entry Requirements

Click here to register for the course.

Once registered you will be given a date to come back to have an initial assessment of your English (reading, writing, speaking and understanding).

After that, you will go onto a waiting list prior to starting the course properly.  Please be aware that we have many, many people wanting to do the ESOL course and therefore the waiting list is long – you may not be able to start the course fully for 2-3 months.
