Students can also pathway from the EAP course to our other partners without taking IELTS.
Our teachers are professional and highly experienced. They are committed to helping students improve their English inside and outside of the classroom. On average our teaching staff have 8 years of classroom experience. Our teachers regularly join in student activities and spend time with students outside of the classroom.
