IELTS Intensive - Academic Writing and Speaking


What is the module?

Our additional IELTS Intensive: Academic Writing and Speaking module is available for students who want to focus on developing their English skills before they begin the Warwick IFP. The module will specifically target improvement in the academic writing and speaking components of the IELTS test.

Who is the module for?

The module allows students to spend time focusing exclusively on English before the start of the Warwick IFP. It also provides students with an opportunity to join the Warwick IFP if they achieve a 5.0 in the IELTS Writing Component instead of 5.5, which is required for our main programme.

What's included on the module?

You will receive at least 15 hours of tuition each week and the small class sizes mean that the module will be extremely student-centred, with small group tasks and competitions, encouraging lots of communication between you, your tutors and other students.

The skills that you will be developing will be directly linked to the IELTS test requirements, increasing your confidence in using English and allowing you to achieve the best scores possible on the IELTS test.

You will also find that the skills you will be practising are a great way to prepare for the IFP, including learning the best techniques for listening to lectures, writing short reports and essays, as well as learning how to study independently - a vital skill for university life.

You will have the opportunity to take mock English language tests too, which will give you a really clear indication of your progress.

Upon completion of the module, you will automatically progress to the Warwick IFP course that you have applied for and will not need to take an additional IELTS.
