Course aims

This course develops the professional English language skills you will need to work and study in a technological environment. It is designed for international students of computer science and technical English in secondary schools, universities and technical colleges. It aims to help you develop a wide variety of relevant subject-specific language skills and to acquire knowledge of computers and IT expertise in English.

The course is also ideal for professionals working in an IT industry where English has become the required language. The course will help professionals who use computers in areas such as: technical support, computer engineering, software design, web design, desktop publishing, computer security, network administration, and blog writing and administration.

English study support

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 IT experts.

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!

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