Important information

If your level of English is not yet high enough for enrolment for these courses you can first follow an Intensive Course (G-1.30) for a period of preparation.


If you would like an indication of your English language level, we can advise you on a suitable test to take before you enrol. This will be used as a guide, and final acceptance is subject to our entry test held at the school. If you are not yet at the minimum level required, you will be transferred to a suitable alternative course.
