Academic Services: Orientation
- Language Placement test
When you arrive at the school on your first day at 9:00am, you will do a placement test, which will tell us which class best suits your level of English. There are 4 parts to this test: grammar, vocabulary, writing and speaking.
Once this test has been completed, you and your new schoolmates will be given an induction by one of our friendly admissions staff or teachers. During this induction you will receive a Berlitz information pack, which is crammed full of useful information about exploring Manchester, studying at Berlitz and enjoying your time in England. You will also be given your timetable for the first week and you will be shown where your classrooms are. You will be given a tour of the school and introduced to your teachers.
- Academic Placement Service
Berlitz Manchester provides an Academic Placement Service for students studying at the centre. This service provides initial counselling regarding university options and assistance in applying for your preferred university programme. This service is undergraduate and Masters degree programmes.
During your course you will meet with the Director of Studies or Assistant Director of Studies on a regular basis to review your progress, and to discuss your objectives for the weeks ahead. We keep a record of these sessions, enabling us to chart your progress. This is your opportunity to provide feedback, and influence the direction of your course.
- End of Course Certificate
Subject to satisfactory attendance, at the end of your course you will receive a certificate, which will provide you with a record of your achievement at Berlitz Manchester. This certificate will indicate the level you have achieved and the corresponding CEF level.
