Teacher Training

We can help both qualified and trainee teachers keep their language skills up to scratch, prepare for teacher training courses and maximise their potential.

As English is now the language of international research, having more teachers speak English can increase the amount of English-language research published, raising your university's position in rankings.

This in turn will attract more students, both domestic and international, as they search for the courses they wish to study delivered in English.

We can also run CELTA training courses for your current students as we currently do with Oxford Brookes University in the UK.

Case Studies - Teacher Training

British Study Centres partners with Oxford Brookes University in the delivery of the Cambridge CELTA teacher training qualification.

This offers university students the chance to get a world-renowned teaching qualification alongside their degree.

Case Studies - In-Sessional English

EM Normandie was looking for an overseas campus and for established experts in English Language Teaching to support their degree programmes and allow students to spend one year of their studies in an English speaking country and perfect their communication skills in English.

Through working with BSC they can now offer all years of study a year abroad at either our Dublin or Oxford centres.

English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI)

To help students and staff achieve their full potential, universities increasingly need to deliver educational programmes in English.

English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) has never been more important for universities, as most academic research is now published in English and students' dissertations and research are also carried out in English.

To find out how we can help you with EMI just contact our expert team today.
