Description of centre

Aberystwyth is a friendly town in west Wales, well known for its beautiful coastal location and safe living environment. It is the cultural centre of the region, and home to the National Library of Wales and Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Our friendly and highly professional International English Centre (IEC) is an integral part of the University and offers a wide range of courses. The University, which overlooks the sea, opened in 1872, and has an international reputation for its long tradition of high quality teaching and research in a modern learning environment. Whether you want to prepare for a degree in the UK, improve your general English skills or just take a study holiday, we have courses to suit your needs.

At the IEC we pride ourselves on our high quality courses, personalised teaching and strong pastoral care. We keep classes small (maximum 16) to ensure that every student receives individual attention, and we have a personal tutor system in place to support your individual learning needs.

The IEC offers degree preparation courses (including an International Foundation Certificate with Fast-Track option, a Pre-Masters Programme, and Pre-Sessional Courses) to help you prepare for the challenges of undergraduate or postgraduate study.

We have Target English courses and an English Language Summer School with free social programme to help you enhance your general English ability. We also offer Teacher Development Courses to allow English language teachers to improve their language skills, find new inspiration and reinvigorate their teaching methods. Bespoke Courses for closed groups are available on request.

Group bookings are welcome for our Film-Making though English Course, which provides the opportunity to improve your English skills and receive expert film-making tuition, and our English with Sports and Exercise Science Course provides a unique opportunity to develop your English skills and gain insight into the science of sport by working with expert researchers. Our UK University Experience Course gives high school students am opportunity to experience university life in Britain.

Whatever your requirements we are confident that you will enjoy all that the IEC and Aberystwyth has to offer.
