Course Summary

Course Description

Overview: This course teaches advanced oral and written English skills as well as essential academic skills.  Students gain the language, study and cultural skills they need for admission to and success at an international university.   Students study in small groups (8-15 students per class) so have a lot of time with the teacher.  Students benefit from visits to universities, monthly academic pathway newsletters and one-to-one counseling and advising services from Tamwood staff and coaches to help them refine their personal education plan, select universities and make their university applications.
