Improve your English, make new friends, learn about British culture and have fun! This course prepares students whose first language is not english for academic study at university, or for working and living in an English-speaking environment.

The course runs for 16 hours a week over three terms. The course includes free study materials, Cambridge English exam preparation, regular tutorials with your course tutor and one excursion per term.

A-levels

A-levels are still the most popular route into university in the UK. Last year our students went on to study at 11 of the 24 Russell Group Universities, including the University of Oxford and King's College London.

At Activate Learning, we have organised our subjects into pathways. Each pathway relates to a career destination and provides a selection of A-level choices, helping you gain sufficient UCAS points for your university application. A full-time A-level programme (three subjects) includes four hours of teaching per subject per week, plus tutorial and self-study time.

A-levels run at our Oxford and Reading campuses providing you with the opportunity to experience living in a historic city or modern, vibrant town - both with easy access to London.
