Cambridge Advanced (CAE) Preparation Course

Cambridge Advanced (CAE) Preparation Course

We are running a 9-week, Cambridge Advanced Preparation Course this autumn, with half-board residential accommodation included at the same price as homestay!

Study towards your exam in York, an amazing, year-round city!  York is one of Europe’s top tourist destinations and home to on of the UK’s top universities. There is lots to do year round and, because York is less well known in the Language teaching world, it is not full of language schools!  So why not study somewhere with a truly English feel?

The course will run from Sunday 4th October ~ Sunday 6th December 2020. The exam is in the final week. Students can join for any length of time and from any point. The exam fee is included in the price!
The course offers 22.5 hours of tuition each week. The morning lessons (15 hours) will be based round a CAE course-book. The afternoon lessons will be skills based.

Key Points:

  • Half-board hotel accommodation
  • Full-day exam preparation course
  • Free Manchester Airport Transfers on 4th October (in) and 6th December (out)
  • Exam included (4+ week bookings)

Why is York a great student city?  Let’s show you some of the reasons!

"Melton College is very friendly and cheerful. I have improved my language skills and feel more confident after my course"- Patrycja from Poland, Adult English 

"The teachers at Melton College are patient and help improve your English skills" - Sviatoslav from Ukraine, Adult English 

"I like Melton College because the teachers are great and I have improved my English a lot" - Maud from France, Adult English and IELTS Prep 

Dates 2020

Students can start on any Monday.  The exam is in the final week with the written papers on Tuesday, 2nd December and the speaking exam on the following Friday. Students can join for any number of weeks but, as the course builds towards the exam and the exam fee is included for students joining for 4 or more weeks, it makes sense to plan to finish on Sunday 6th December!
