Joining a Course
Students enrol in the School's programmes for various reasons. Some students look for places in the public schools, institutions of higher learning, or have career or job related reasons while others may simply want to acquire a basic level of communicative competence in a language. The School's selection process ensures that students are placed in courses that further their learning objectives. The selection process also provides a high degree of certainty that the student has the capability to succeed in the course.
The first step in the selection process is a pre-course counselling session with a course consultant. The course consultant's primary role is to guide students through the connections between educational means and ends.
At this stage, student will also be informed of the course administrative procedures, including the payment of fees.
Course Admission Requirements
The course consultant will inform a prospective student of any prerequisites for the courses. The admission requirements for every course are listed on the School website under the heading 'Courses'.
Course Admission Test
The School's admission requirements require a certain standard of proficiency in English, which varies for different courses. A placement test assesses the prospective student's level of English, ensuring that the student will be able to cope with the linguistic demands of the course.
Verification of Supporting Documents
In conjunction with a completed application form, copies of documents issued by educational institutions must be submitted. The School will verify the authenticity of these documents by checking the original documents.
Letter of Offer
On acceptance into a course, a Letter of Offer will be given. The Letter of Offer states the course, the amount of fees to be paid and other relevant information.
