Intensive English Course Overview
We're reopening our English Language Centre for face-to-face classes from Monday 14 September. Please see the 'Returning to Campus' section below for more information.
An Intensive English Language Course (21 hours per week) combines General English in the mornings with English Skills in the afternoons. The course is aimed at students who would like to improve their skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) as well as vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.
This course is available at 4 levels:
- A2 (pre-intermediate)
- B1 (intermediate)
- B2 (upper-intermediate)
- C1 (advanced)
Your level will be tested at the start of the course.
Students on this course have access to extra-curricular activities provided by Regent’s University London (e.g. trips to London sights, English conversation club, sports, taster lectures etc.) as well as the University's facilities (Regent’s library and self-study areas, refectory, café etc). In autumn 2020, extra-curricular activities will be delivered online and access to some parts of the campus may be restricted.
Returning to Campus
From Monday 14 September, students can enjoy all the benefits of learning a language in-person at our stunning Regent’s Park campus. They’ll get personal support from expert tutors, and meet their classmates in a safe, socially distanced setting.
Health and safety
We’ve been working hard to get our campus ready, both to minimise the risk of COVID-19 and to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
Here's what we're doing:
- We’re hosting our placement testing and induction sessions online via Microsoft Teams, rather than in person, before each course begins
- We’re spreading classes across campus, using larger classrooms and staggering break times to increase separation and maintain social distancing
- We're increasing ventilation by opening windows frequently, making hand sanitiser widely available, and cleaning classrooms thoroughly before and after each lesson
- We’re encouraging students and academics to wear a mask at all times while walking around campus, and utilising a new one-way traffic system to maintain distancing
- We’re reducing paper handouts, encouraging online resources and using online channels (such as email and Microsoft Teams) to communicate where possible
We're also continuing to follow government guidelines closely and make updates to our processes as needed.
