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.).
