Description of centre

Abbey College is located on a beautiful 70-acre campus in Malvern, central England. The College, which was established as a seat of learning in 1874, provides residential university preparation courses (IGCSE, A level, Foundation) and English Language courses (long and short-term) for students from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures.

Class sizes are small, success rates are high, fees are all-inclusive and a high level of residential care is provided. The college is fully accredited and regularly inspected.

The Academic School (minimum age 14) offers GCSE/IGCSE, AS/A Level and University Foundation Programmes in a variety of subjects. The aim of the college is to give the best possible preparation for students wanting to go on to study at good universities in the UK and overseas. The college has an excellent record of student results and success.

All lessons are taught by carefully-selected teachers in small classes (average seven students in one class). Subjects we specialise in include Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, English, Business, Accounting, I.T. and Art. We also run a unique Foundation Course for Medicine in conjunction with the renowned First Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Prague, amongst others. English Language training is included in all courses where necessary.

The English Language School falls into two main categories – English All Year and Summer/Easter Vacation Courses.

The English All Year programmes (minimum age 12) are intensive courses run year-round, from 2-36 weeks. If required students can study to gain a recognised English Language qualification (such as IELTS, TOEFL, Trinity, IGCSE, A Level and the various Cambridge certificates).

The Vacation Courses, established since 1969, run in the Summer and Easter periods, for 2-12 weeks. These offer general English lessons combined with a full programme of excursions (2 per week) and numerous on-site sports and social activities. Different programmes are provided for Children (8-11), Teens (12-17) and Adults (18+).
