27.5 hours per week
The Octorial Programme is an intensive full-time programme of study crafted to build English language skills for professional, academic and personal development. Each day includes a combination of language skills lessons, communication workshops and mentored independent study. Students graduate with a broad skill set and the ability to use English confidently and dynamically in a variety of situations. The course develops a depth of language skill and a breadth of cultural awareness which gives you a cosmopolitan perspective and a natural falir for connectivity.
Class sizes are very small, and the constant proximity to tutors provides students with high levels of individual attention and facilitates rapid progression. The small class size creates a collaborative training environment where tutors can focus on each student’s own intelligences and provide extra coaching where needed.
