UIC offers to students from more than 50 countries around the world the chance to master the global language of our times, English. Located at the heart of the British capital, the school’s facilities help foreign students to familiarise themselves with London and explore the ins and outs of Europe’s most vibrant city.
UIC University Foundation Course
Apart from language courses for students and professionals, UIC has formed a joint foundation programme with St Mary’s University of Twickenham for students aiming to study at British universities. Based in idyllic Twickenham, the foundation course allows participants to study a wide variety of academic subjects, partly taught by St Mary’s academic staff. It’s an intensive 36 weeks programme, starting in September and finishing in June, whereas students equipped with a sufficient level of English may start in January. Finally, students who wish to complete an undergraduate degree at St Mary’s University are able to carry 30 first year credits, which is about 25% of the credits requirement for an academic year.
Prepare for English Language Exams
Students whose mother tongue is not English and aim to take an undergraduate course in an English-speaking country are required to sit an exam proving their ability to speak English fluently, such as IELTS and TOEFL. Tedious as it may be, the process of delving into the realm of a foreign language can be extremely rewarding and even fascinating, particularly when it comes along with a combination of listening, speaking, reading and writing assessments. Among the most prestigious exams that a student can prepare for at UIC London are IELTS, TOEIC and Cambridge First Certificate.
A City of Miracles and Wonders
A bustling city such as London offers a unique experience to students from all over the world, allowing them to explore not only their skills in English, but also their ability to communicate with their peers in a language different than their mother tongue and assimilate themselves in a new and challenging environment. It’s not rare for students and professionals to be asked to live and work with people from different backgrounds and cultures. In other words, for students aiming to boost their language skills in an English school London can be another type of school, bigger in size and full of temptations. Besides, UIC is located in Mortimer Road at central London, just a stone’s throw from the shopping frenzy of Oxford Circus and the characteristically British serenity of Regent Park.
