Frequently Asked Questions

Once you have applied and paid for your course, you’ll receive a welcome letter telling you we have received your application. Closer to your course start date, you’ll receive a welcome pack from us containing details of your course, class times, assessment criteria and clear technical instructions for how to join your class.

The course has three key components: Live lessons with a qualified teacher; an extended study component which is an opportunity to work with your classmates on homework or collaborative tasks in a virtual environment; and you will also need to spend some time studying independently and preparing for your lessons.

We keep our classes small so you get the attention you deserve, so you’ll usually study with 10-12 people in the live lessons.

You’ll need to download Zoom and Teams. You will also get access to Oxford International online platforms with additional learning resources.

You’ll have one 90 minute live lesson per day from Monday to Friday. However, you’ll also be assigned additional tasks and study projects so you will also need to spend about 2 hours on extended study and self-study.

You’ll need to complete a marked assignment every week. There will also be a final assessment at the end of the course. For 12 and 16-week courses regular progress tests are conducted to monitor your progress.
