Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.
Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

As this is a non-accredited course, there is no formal qualification. However, you will be asked to complete activities that demonstrate how you are progressing on your course.
This is not an accredited course so there is no formal examination. However, your tutor will ask you to complete informal assessment exercises and will give you feedback. If you are to gain maximum benefit and enjoyment from your language class, it will be useful to spend some time working between sessions. There will usually be a small amount of homework set each week (up to an hour work). When homework is not set, it is still a good idea to spend about that amount of time going over what has been done in class. Learning activities will include individual, pair, small group and whole class work. You will listen to tapes, do speaking role plays, play games and read simple texts.
