UK LANGUAGE PROGRAMMES

English language courses are available all over the country at any time depending on the student's needs. There are 3 main types of course:

 

1. Pre-sessional English: courses designed to help students improve their academic English before starting their main course. These courses are available at all colleges, universities and pathway colleges and language schools.

 

2. General and Business English - for people who only want to study English for up to one year. Available at language schools, pathway colleges, universities and FE colleges. These courses take place for adults all year round and they can choose the length by weeks or by terms.

 

3. Summer Courses: there are many and varied summer courses for adults, teens and children, with a wide range of options as well as English- sport, drama, business, culture and media, Art and Design etc.

 

*Note that the UK visa is strict about English language requirements for academic programmes so check this first before deciding on a study plan.

US LANGUAGE PROGRAMMES

All Colleges and universities have their own English language centres to help international students meet the entrance requirements for their courses and to support their studies. These programmes can be applied for together with the main course and entrance to the main course is guaranteed once the student passes the English programme and achieves the required score.

In addition to these, there are many different, private language centres in the US which provide a wide range of courses for different needs:

 

1. Short summer language and activity courses for children, teens and adults
2. Short language courses for working people (eg Business English)
3. Examination preparation courses (for example TOEFL, IELTS etc)
4. English Language Teacher Training courses (eg CELTA, DELTA)
5. Pre-sessional English courses with university placement (for students who have not yet decided on their main course of study)

 

Vietnamese students and working people can attend summer courses during their annual vacation time, and they can take their pre-sessional English courses with university placement at recognized language schools in the US which have partnerships with local universities. However, it is difficult, if not impossible, to obtain a US student visa just to study English, especially for a single person with no other study plan.

Generally, for all except summer or short business courses, students should have a clear study plan for the period after they complete their English course and should get an offer letter for their next course or proof that the language school will guarantee a university placement for them in order to get a visa. Many US language schools have a range of partnerships to help students move forward to the next stage of their study plan, offering  university placements or pathway programmes with articulation to universities.
