In Term 2 (January to March 2021) and Term 3 (March to June 2021) our pre-sessional courses will be taught online in response to the Coronavirus (covid-19) outbreak. You'll be able to study your pre-sessional course from home, you won't be expected to study live online sessions at night and you won't need a visa.
We'll continue to review our courses for Term 4 (July to August 2021), with the possibility of on-campus teaching.
"I like the live sessions, because we can communicate with our teachers, and try to express our ideas in English."
