Preparation courses for international certification

IELTS certification

The aim of the course is to prepare students so that they can achieve the best result they can in their IELTS exam. Students will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of English and develop the specific skills needed to take the exam: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

 

The course requires active participation in class, whether online or in person. It is also essential that participants undertake the study exercises set by the teacher between classes.

There is a maximum number of 20 participants per class

Should a minimum number of students not be enrolled for a specific course, Cattolica International reserves the right to propose alternative options -- i.e., delivery method or days and times -- or to cancel the course and refund the full amount paid.

  • The online courses are held via live streaming on fixed days and times and are taught by our certified English mother-tongue teachers. Lessons are held in synchronous mode and student engagement is encouraged by interactive course delivery. Lessons are not recorded.
  • The courses delivered in person are held at the Milan campus, and can be attended by students from all campuses. 

Because of the interactive nature of the classes, student attendance is fundamental to the success of the course and the achievement of course objectives.
 

Infosessions are offered both online (via Teams) and in person.

Registration is required: Find out about the dates and register here.
