Our 4-week intensive (International English Language Testing System) courses provide full and thorough preparation for the IELTS exam. The IELTS courses always end on a Friday and in most cases, the IELTS exam is held the following day (Saturday).
With a strong exam focus, our courses guide students through the four different parts, familiarising them with IELTS exam techniques and requirements, so that students know exactly what to expect and are confident of their own abilities when they sit down to start the exam (see Academic profile below for more information).
Many IELTS courses combine IELTS preparation with General English – but this is an unproductive strategy, and the student’s efforts become diluted. Our intensive 4-week courses are far better, enabling students to focus completely on the IELTS exam, and to achieve their full potential in the exam itself.
Students who need to improve their English level should enrol in our General English courses before switching to the IELTS course (for example, 12 weeks General English + 4 weeks IELTS). On average, students need to study in a General English course for 12 weeks to improve their IELTS score by 1 point.
OSE has an international reputation for excellence in examinations. Since we started to run our 4-week IELTS course, 96% of our students have achieved the score they needed. Click here to see a table of our most recent IELTS exam results.
Students must be at a minimum of CEFR level B2 to enrol in this course.
Our IELTS classes are very small, with a maximum of 8 students, but there are often only 4 – 6 students per class.
Lessons are Monday to Friday.
