Course aims

This course is for nurses who have yet to reach the required IELTS level for entry to the nursing profession in the UK, or appropriately qualified nurses who wish to develop their existing English skills within a nursing context. There are four different courses, of different lengths, which depend on your starting level of English.

Alongside developing your English skills, you will also be given an introduction to the NHS, and the English skills you will need for work within it, including the types of forms and case notes you will be expected to make, and effective communication skills to allow you to deal with patients and colleagues.

English study support

Academic
You will be placed in small classes, giving you plenty of direct contact with your tutors. Our qualified tutors have taught English for many years, in many different countries (China, Russia, Libya, UK and many others),  and include recognised UCLES and IELTS examiners.

Pastoral
You will be well looked after by our Centre support team from the moment you arrive. You will live in a homestay, so you can experience typical British life in the UK and improve your English outside class. Or you can opt for accommodation in our high quality University Halls of residence.

The team also arranges sight seeing trips so you can enjoy all of the attractions that the UK has to offer!

Technical
We offer a full range of technical support, from our audio-visual classrooms to our computer lab and the Kimberlin Library.
