Norwich Study Centre offers four main English courses:

Your level of English will be assessed on the first day by our Director of Studies.

Class sizes are kept small with an average of 8 students per class, and a maximum of 14 students per class. Students are tested regularly throughout their course and given individual tutorials where they receive advice and guidance on their learning. All students receive the end of course certificate with feedback from the Director of Studies.

Courses are available to anyone aged 16 and over, but students under the age of 18 must have a signed consent letter from their parents. Information for students who are under 18 can be found here.

Our full-time courses run throughout the year. We have classes for different levels of English (Beginner to Advanced) as well as courses for IELTS and Cambridge English exam preparation. A year at Flying Classrooms is divided into four terms (see current terms dates below). Students entering a full-time course can start on any Monday during term-time.

Courses can be booked from one week up to one academic year. Private 1:1 classes can be arranged at times to suit individual students.
