SummaryThe C1 Advanced exam is a test of general English language ability run by Cambridge ESOL. As with other Cambridge exams such as the B2 First and C2 Proficiency, the qualification is widely recognised in European countries by employers, and increasingly recognised in Asia and South America. It is not intended as a test that measures English ability for entry to English-speaking universities and other institutions, but a pass in one of the Cambridge exams is often accepted as evidence of English-language ability for this purpose. Course entry level: Advanced. Course hours: Full-time: 23 hours per week; 20 (60-minute) hours in class; 3 (60-minute) hours teacher-supervised independent learning. You must be at least 17 years old to apply.
