It is possible to enter for the IELTS exam which takes place once a month in Exeter through Mayflower College, Plymouth.

What topics will I study?

You will be taught by an experienced IELTS teacher in a group with a minimum size of 10 and a maximum of 16. There will be opportunities to practise different parts of the IELTS exam. You will get feedback during lessons and advice will be given on when and where the exam can be taken.

What are the entry requirements?

Level 2 ESOL (recommended). This is a part time course with a lot of self-study at home, so it can be taken by anyone living in Devon, not just in the Exeter area.

What facilities are there?

Learners will study in a well equipped classroom containing a computer and data projector. Learners can borrow graded readers from the Hele Road Learning Centre.

What can the course lead on to?

Specific IELTS grades are used by UK universities, the NHS and countries such as Australia to meet their language entry requirements.

Are there any additional costs?

You need to pay the exam fee.
