What our students say
I had an IELTS score 6 and experience of English classes to prepare for IELTS. Confidently, I can say that PEAP was better and totally different experience compared with my local English classes.
It was like a university preparation class that not only increased my academic English skills but also helped me to be more familiar with the university tasks and the environment. I made friendships which helped me to not feel alone and met lovely people.
The best bits about the course were friendly environment, fantastic student support system, kind and knowledgeable tutors.
