Our Summer Academic Programme combines the flexibility of our English courses with free time to enjoy everything Cardiff has to offer. Our courses are ideal for anyone looking to improve their general English, prepare for an IELTS exam or focus on a particular subject with the option to add English for Specific Purposes (ESP).

Using a more academic approach, our Summer Academic Programme will typically consist of general English in the morning and project work in the afternoon.
