English Language Centre

If English is not your first language you can join us for a course of General English or IELTS Preparation at our fantastic English Language Centre in Houghall, near the centre of Durham. We will help you to improve your English communication skills for work or study purposes.  We offer flexible courses throughout the whole year and you will benefit from small classes which focus on your individual needs.  If you need to take an IELTS test we will also assist you with the exam application process and you can take the test at a local centre. We accept students from beginner to advanced levels and we will carry out a full diagnostic test and needs analysis before you start your course.

Summer Courses

We run short summer courses (July/August) combining General English classes with a varied social activity programme. Students will enjoy lively classes at our Houghall campus and will participate in activities and excursions in the afternoons and at weekends. We work closely with you to create a bespoke programme that will fit the needs of students so please contact us to discuss options. Please note that accommodation for summer 2016 will be off-site within a short distance of the main College campus.

Pre-University Courses

For students wishing to study a pre-university course, we can offer courses at level 3 and above. Please contact the international office directly to discuss your needs.
