High-quality intensive English courses for intermediate/advanced students


Our courses

Southampton English Language Centre specialises in short, intensive courses for those in the intermediate to advanced ability range. The School is not open all year round, but operates in two seasons: spring and summer. Most courses last three weeks; occasionally we also offer one of two weeks. Courses offer 20 hours of tuition per week.

At the beginning of every course there is a placement test, after which students are put into groups according to their level.

The summer courses have unfortunately had to be cancelled.

Course A: Language and Life March 26 - April 15 £1040
Course Q: Language and Life August 6 - August 26 Cancelled
Course R: Language and Life August 27 - September 16 Cancelled

The above prices include accommodation (half board) and six coach excursions.

Courses start at 9.00 a.m. on Monday and end on Friday at 12.00 noon.
