Academic English

Abbey College Cambridge A Level and International Foundation Programme students will attend up to five hours of Academic English lessons per week (GCSE students will study English Language GCSE). Academic English lessons are compulsory for all students who speak English as second language, or who have an English level less than IELTS 7.5.

Academic English will help you to better understand the terminology used and to improve your understanding of lesson content and its context. This is especially important if you have been taught outside the UK, as even if you have studied in an English language school in your home country, the terminology we used here might be slightly different.

Academic English is also designed to help you achieve the English level needed to progress to your first choice university. Lessons are compulsory until you achieve an IELTS level of 7.5, lessons become optional to attend after this.

Academic English is offered to students at no additional charge.
