We have seen yet another bumper year on CEWL courses with over 2,000 students attending in 2017-18. These are moslty distributed across our provision in World Languages, English Language and Academic Skills and our Pathway Programmes along with an impressive 270 students on CEWL-run Study Plus courses.
We have seen notable increases in the number of students taking Language Express courses and of those making the most of our free English Language and Academic Skills classes. We also had a number of new courses this year with Language Express Greek, IELTS Test Preparation, Academic Skills for Maths and Science Foundation, and British Sign Language courses all starting in September 2017. We also have new courses starting in September 2018 with additional levels being provided on Arabic and Mandarin World Languages modules Language Express Dutch and a credit-bearing version of our Talking Cultures course.
With the vast majority of our courses seeking to offer internationalisation opportunities for all students at Kent, we are delighted to be able to do so for so many students.
In addition to this, CEWL then administers other Study Plus courses and Summer Schools, adding another 812 students for a total of over 3,000 students. We’re excited to now be able to welcome these students in our new premises in Chipperfield and look forward to seeing many more in 2018-19.
