Entry requirements (minimum)

This course is designed for people for whom English is not their first language, and who would like to develop their language skills in order to pursue a career or to be able to undertake study in a non-ESOL subject.

This course is intended for learners for whom a qualification which is recognised world-wide is desirable. 

Learners will have considerable competence in English, but need to improve their language skills in order to make the progress in study or in employment which they aspire to. Ideally students should have an SQA National 5 qualification (or the equivalent).

Progression routes

On successful completion of the exam which is payable separately and will depend on the student being accepted for entry, students can apply for SQA ESOL Higher (ESOL Advanced), Cambridge English: Advanced, or progress onto non-ESOL courses.

Please note: 

This course will not run unless there are viable numbers.
