FAQ

How can I enrol at ETC?
Just complete the online enrolment form here and we will do the rest.

What about my English level?
You can do the online test here which will give us some idea of your level of English.

How much money should I bring with me?
The UK is not as expensive as you might think and it is possible to live quite cheaply here. On top of your accommodation costs and your tuition fees, you should budget between £10 and £15 per day for living costs.

Who will I meet at ETC?
We have students from all over the world all doing the same English courses as you so will never be short of people to talk to. We run social activities and events every day so you can be sure you will meet everyone else and have a great time while you are learning English.

What about your teachers?
We only employ experienced teachers who have a degree and a relevant teaching qualification to ensure you get the highest standard of teaching possible.

Do I need a visa?
Broadly speaking, if you are from a European country, you do not need a visa. If you are from outside the EU you may do. The best thing to do if you are not European is to contact the British Embassy in your country; they will be able to tell you very quickly what you need to study in the UK.

What visa should I apply for?
The best thing to do is to ask your agent. If you are not coming though an agent, get in touch with the UK embassy in your country. They will be able to help you.

What is the weather like in the UK?
Not as bad as you might have heard! The weather in Bournemouth may surprise you. We have a large proportion of days with nothing but blue sky and in the summer the temperature can reach 30C/86F. In the winter, we can have some bad weather and occasionally even a tiny amount of snow... have you ever seen a beach with snow on it?!

How do I get to Bournemouth?
Most people fly into Heathrow airport. From here you can take the bus which takes 1 hour and 45 minutes. If you prefer, we can come and collect you by private car.

Does Bournemouth have an airport?
Yes, we have a medium sized international airport where you can fly to Italy, France, Germany, Spain or even the USA!
 

Who will be in my class?
Unless you ask for a 1:1 class or a closed group course, you will normally be tested according to level and placed in a multi-national class of students of a similar age to you.  Maximum class size is normally 14 students (although the maximum can rise to 18 students in the busy summer months of June, July and August) and the minimum age for all Adult Courses is normally 18.  (Students aged 16 can study in adult+ classes with the written permission of their parents or guardians - please see the Junior Enrolment form).
