In this course, you will work on an individual programme in our Language Self Access Centre in the library, with help from a tutor. You can prepare for exams such as IELTS, Pearson or OET, or focus on your reading, writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary or grammar. In weeks 1, 3 and 5 of each course there will be a one-hour group workshop on IELTS preparation. In weeks 2, 4 and 6 of each course there will be a one-hour group workshop on OET or Pearson preparation.

This course is only offered at our Christchurch - Madras Street campus.

The class takes place in the Language Self-Access Centre (LSAC), upstairs in the library. It has many up-to-date resources and you can study there whenever it is open.
