English language skills for entry to Diploma and Degree programmes.

The College has its own integral English language school, the British Study Centres school of English, which is recognised by the British Council and was recently voted the best English Language school in Europe.

Students who attend Pre-Sessional English classes are taught by British Study Centres School of English teachers in the same building and with access to the same facilities and services as the students on our diploma and degree courses.
