We opened three colleges in September 2014 teaching English and Foundation studies.
English and Foundation teachers will need a degree in English, English Literature, Applied Linguistics or TESOL and a minimum of three years teaching in EAP, EFL or ESP fields in a foreign country and a TESOL qualification preferably at Diploma level. Non-native English speakers must have IELTS 7.5 or above.
In September 2015 we will start teaching the vocational and technical programmes.
Here is a little more about our colleges.
