Entry Requirements

In order to enrol on the course, a minimum level of English is required in order to ensure the participant receives the most suitable level of tuition for where they are at, enabling us at UKEC Academy to more effectively get students to where they need to be.



At UKEC Academy we understand that every class is different and every student is different. Our teachers adapt their teaching style and methodology in order to support and include all students in their learning. This method enables our classes to be as effective as possible. Our classes are learner-centred so students always actively participate in classes and benefit from lots of opportunity to practise the language. The UKEC Academy method provides our international students with a supportive, enjoyable and interactive environment. Our students will be challenged and stimulated throughout their general English course.

Our classes follow the following principles:

  • Explanation/Demonstration
  • Observation
  • Reading
  • Classroom tasks & activities
  • Assessment
  • Individual learning plans
  • Performance reviews
