Summary

Students who enter any of the Academic English Preparation programmes must have regularly attended school in their home country. Students will be required to provide a school report that confirms that they are achieving against educational standards corresponding to their age. The Academic English Preparation for Intermediate School Studies programme consists of 3 modules: English for Schools Starter (23 hours * 12 weeks) (pre NOF level Q1); English for Schools level 1 (23 hours * 12 weeks) (pre NQF level Q1); English for Schools level 2 (23 hours * 12 weeks) (Equivalent to NOF Level Q 1). The learning outcomes have been designed to facilitate the teaching of mixed language levels and are grouped into the same elements, and will be taught in the same topic areas. The Academic English Preparation for Intermediate School Studies programme is based on the Cambridge English for Schools series which was chosen because it links the language learning activities to the school curriculum.

All three Academic Preparation for School programmes have been critiqued by an advisory group of experts in the field.
