How long can I study for?
What is the minimum age?
How many students are there in each class?
I am going to study for a long time. What if I want to take a holiday during my course?
Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?
How are students allocated to classes?
We will assess your ability in English when you arrive and assign you to the best class to develop your English.
What level of English do I need to study?
Our courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CEFR). The CEFR levels are: Basic User: A1 – A2; Independent User: B1 – B2 and Proficient User: C1 – C2. For some of our specialist courses we require a minimum level of English (see course descriptions).
If you are a complete beginner in English, we may not have a suitable group class for you. Please contact us to discuss. Similarly, if your level of English is very high (C2 and beyond) we may not have a group class at your level but are happy to discuss your needs and how we can meet them.
How many classes can I take?
If I need to be absent from the school, what should I do?
I am worried I cannot speak English very well. Will the Oxford English Centre accept me?
