Online Winter School feedback:

"It led me to learn so many new words." Mihyn from South Korea

"I was so thankful that the professors taught and understood me.  If I have a chance to learn again next time, I want to learn again. Thank you for the class." Jihee from South Korea

"I learnt to respect and understand not only Korea but also other cultures." Min from South Korea

"I think it was a good experience. It was also good that professors studied various activities for students." Dowha from South Korea 


  • Students are tested on arrival and placed in classes appropriate to their levels
  • Classes take place on campus 
  • Classes will be based around cultural themes which will give students an authentic English language learning experience
  • On top of language skills students learn global soft skills that are increasingly seen as important to employers in a progressively globalised world
  • Classes will integrate the development of speaking, listening, writing and reading in interactive classes
  • At the end of the course students will give an academic presentation and produce written work
  • Students completing end of course tasks and with a 70% attendance will receive an end of course report detailing attendance, progress, English level and grade for presentation. 
  • This can be used by partner universities to award credits towards their own degree programmes.
