Would you like to improve your English? IBS has programmes to prepare your language skills for higher level education.

Intensive English Language Programme

This 1-year programme will definitely boost your English skills with 4-5 classes every weekday in small groups of 10-12 international students.

The Intensive English Language Programme (IELP) has been running successfully for a decade now at International Business School. Its primary objective is to prepare students for continuing their studies in English at higher education level. It is, therefore, first and foremost recommended for those who eventually wish to obtain an English university degree from the International Business School/The University of Buckingham. It is also an excellent opportunity for those who simply want to improve their English for various purposes.

The programme includes a total of 600 hours of English lessons per academic year. Students will have in-depth knowledge and practice in the following language areas:

  • Pronunciation
  • Use of English
  • Skills development
  • Reading and writing
  • Listening and speaking
  • Business English

All the language teachers are highly qualified and have substantial experience in teaching. The programme also offers the unique opportunity of learning 6 hours of Business English per week at all levels (except for absolute Beginners, who receive Pronunciation classes instead). Students are grouped according to their actual level of English, the levels range from Beginner to Upper-Intermediate. Once they have fulfilled the requirements of the first semester, students continue their studies at the next, higher level of English language.

Besides the language modules, IBS offers the following extra opportunities to the course participants:

  • At the end of the programme, those students whose average score in the Business English subject is at least 65%, may take the LCCI (London Chamber of Commerce and Industry) Language Exam free of charge in the school.
  • We provide students with Progress Reports (informing students about their absences, academic achievement etc.) twice during each semester.
  • Also, there are so-called ‘Assembly Sessions’ every other week, where IELP students can meet and exchange views about the course (in the form of short country presentations and various in-and outdoor programmes held according to prior agreement with the students) and can also better familiarize themselves with each other.
  • Those IELP students who achieve passing results (a min. 40% in each English Module) and meet further educational requirements of the programme (their absences do not exceed 20%) receive a Certificate of completion of the course.
