At Bell we teach English to adults aged 16+ and prepare them for internationally-recognised English language exams. We also prepare students for university through our University Foundation Programme (UFP), providing access to undergraduate programmes at top universities throughout the UK, as well as renowned English-medium universities in Europe. Our UFP offers a wide range subjects, meaning students can go on to study an incredible range of business, humanities, science and engineering degrees. We also run a Masters Preparation Course for those wanting to study at postgraduate level at UK universities.
In addition, we train teachers with our CELTA and Delta teacher-training programmes, bespoke teacher courses for groups (including Linguistic Mediation) and run summer teacher courses at Bell Teacher Academy in Cambridge, attended by English teachers from all around the world. Our teacher-trainers include world-class names such as our Head of Education Silvana Richardson, and renowned ELT author Adrian Underhill.
