About Academic English Language, Certificate - at University of Waikato College

Our Academic English preparation programmes are designed for students who need to improve their English language skills in order to study an academic course. There are a number of programmes to suit your needs.

The Academic English Language programme provides direct entry to degree study without the need for further IELTS testing. The programme offers flexible intakes, with multiple points of entry during the year.

Our qualified, experienced, and caring teachers foster a supportive and personalised learning environment, with a maximum of 22 students per class, giving you more individualised attention. You will be taught on the University of Waikato main campus where you have the same access to the services and facilities as degree-level students.

The Academic English Language programme focuses on maximising your progress in each of the four core English skills courses - speaking, writing, reading, and listening. You will also learn study skills to help you learn faster with greater confidence and prepare you for study at the University.

As a full-time student, your core programme will be 23 hours per week. Successful completion of levels 7 or 8 will provide direct entry to most university programmes, whilst level 6 will provide direct entry to the Foundation programme.

You will receive a University of Waikato certificate and will be included in the University of Waikato graduation ceremony booklet. You will also receive a report, which shows the grade for each of the four language skills and a final grade with a comment noting your overall success.
