Our English Plus Programme helps students to accelerate their English language skills and improve their career prospects.
Students on this programme attend our Intensive English course (minimum 8 weeks) which is followed by a work placement in a London-based company (minimum 4 weeks). The duration of the programme is flexible, with the course forming two-thirds of the programme and the work placement a third.
Our Intensive English language course is aimed at helping you improve all your skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) as well as grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. The course is highly interactive, encouraging you to work on your English fluency, accuracy and communication skills in a dynamic and friendly environment.
Having completed the course, you will move on to a work placement in a London-based company where you put the knowledge and skills you have gained into practice.
We offer the placements in a wide range of sectors including marketing, business administration, event management, hospitality and tourism as well as specialist areas such as engineering, finance, architecture, film and TV production, fashion design, HR and software development.
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).

A communicative English language course balancing the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as focusing on grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and aspects of British culture. The classes are personalised and engaging, with a clear focus on meaningful and developmental activities which promote language learning in the context of the classroom and beyond. We take a task-based approach, working to clear, measurable goals. We teach problem-solving skills and learning strategies, so that you can continue to learn outside the classroom. Courses are flexible and respond to your individual needs and difficulties.
All students take a placement test on the first day of the course, followed by regular progress tests. Teachers give continuous feedback on students’ progress. There are regular one-to-one tutorials which give students the opportunity to revise their learning goals and discuss their strengths and areas for improvement.
For this course, we have a maximum class size of 15. This allows students to benefit from a personalised and interactive learning environment.
In preparation for the placement, student will be offered additional support in the following areas:
