Cambridge Preparation Courses

CAE and CPE are part of the world-renowned Cambridge main suite. Our courses are taught by tutors experienced in training for Cambridge English exams. A carefully designed study programme will help you to develop all the language and examination skills required. Courses start in September and January.

The next course begins on Tuesday 25 September 2018.

The first session is a FREE taster session where you can meet the teacher and ask any questions. This takes place from 18.00-19.30 in room TBC. The classes then run on Tuesday evenings between 18.00-21.00 from 02 October 2018 to 11 December 2018. The course fee is £269.

  • There are no entry requirements
  • The fee does not include a textbook.
  • Payment is online via our online store.

The most useful, intensive and fun English course I've ever taken. The teacher has a funny and effective way of teaching and she is always there for the students.

Lucia Munoz Sueilo, Cambridge student 2015


If you are a Kent student, you will earn Employability Points (10 points for the taster session and a further 45 points for completing the course). To claim your points, you need to log them on My Folio.
