Other Information

Since our programmes are delivered in English, you are required to have at least an intermediate level in the language.

If this is not available, we will assess your level through a Skype interview as well as our own English language tests. If we feel you need to improve your language ability, we shall be happy to organise a short intensive course for you (length depending on your needs) prior to the start of your programme.
