As part of our on-going commitment to our international students’ academic achievement in the UK, we offer English Language Support Courses as an additional part of students’ academic programme.

Upon arrival to Bath Academy, students will take an English Language assessment which will determine which level they should be placed in should they require further support in English.

Each class works through a syllabus designed to improve current abilities in speaking, reading, writing and listening. The course focuses on grammar and vocabulary and helps students with techniques and approaches for IELTS exams.

At Bath Academy we also offer English language courses for non-academic students. For more information please see below, or visit our English Language Courses section of the website.

Pre A-Levels

The Pre-A Level Course at Bath Academy prepares international students for the demands of A Level (Advanced Level) study. Students develop their English language, mathematical and academic skills needed to be successful in their A Level studies and future academic careers.

To enter the Pre-A level programme, candidates will need to have an adequate level of English which will be assessed on application, normally done through a Skype interview with the Director of Studies.

International students should have an IELTS score of at least:

  • Level 1 – A2+ (CEFR) Cambridge PET (45-59); KET (Pass)
  • Level 2 – IELTS 5.0 (with no less than 4.5 in any skill)

Academic English Development

Our Academic English Development programme offers academic language support to international students who need to develop their English language and academic literacy skills during their studies. This includes academic writing skills, speaking and presentations, and IELTS exam preparation.
