You need a minimum level of IELTS 5.0 or equivalent. We will place you in an English test preparation class according to your current and most recent IELTS score or equivalent or your score on the CET Placement Test.
CET transformed me both personally and professionally. When I started my ITP course I thought it was so hard, but my teacher gave my confidence and told me that there is nothing you cannot do if you put your mind to it.

The course length is dependent on your current English level, your progress within the course and the English level you wish to achieve. The minimum course length is two weeks.
