English Language Courses for Over 16s
We focus on both Language Skills and Professional Skills
All our courses focus on the skills of Speaking, Reading, Listening, Writing and Grammar but you can add additional skills-based classes to your basic 15-hour General English programme if there is an area of your language you want to focus on.
We also offer language support classes on demand if you are attending a vocational, technical, management or professional course at the college or anywhere else in Cambridge. You can ask for these extra classes when you apply for your main course or when you are at the college.
- English language classes at all levels from Beginner to Advanced – CEFRL A1 to CEFRL C2
- English language classes combined with vocational, academic and university preparation courses
- English language classes for professionals in many different areas
You will experience student life in an English environment with students of many other nationalities.

All students have access to free Wi-Fi anywhere in the college and to computers in the learning centre. The College also offers career and university advice to all its students. The college is equipped with lifts for disability access.
