Description

The level of English you need to succeed in a post-graduate or under-graduate university programme in Britain is exceptionally high.  Our professional academic writing teachers and proofreading services will help you improve your university essays, dissertations, theses, projects and presentations.

Even with a sufficient IELTS or Cambridge score, you still need to advance your academic writing, reading, research and listening skills, as well as your ability to discuss and debate effectively, not to mention your study and time management skills.

We offer the following support to help you get the results you desire:

  • Academic writing coaching
  • Academic skills tuition
  • Proofreading and editing

Homestays
Venture English can arrange homestays with independent hosts for students who want to study with us, typically for 1-8 weeks.

We have carefully chosen local hosts who are warm and friendly, close to school (5-30 minutes by bus or on foot) and have comfortable, pleasant homes where you can study, relax and socialise in English.

You can use the kitchen to prepare meals, chill out in the living room, have a hot shower day or night, access the internet via wifi, and practise your English with your host.

Prices for bed and breakfast with a local host start at £180 per week.  Our one-time fee for arranging your homestay is £35.

Arrange Your Own Accommodation
When we travel, we want accommodation that suits our budget and taste, so we always use Airbnb. With Airbnb, you can choose the kind of accommodation, place and price that suits you.

How to Book

To book your group course or private lesson(s), you need to make full payment.  Places are limited, so early booking is strongly recommended.

At checkout, you can tell us which dates you want to book, and any other information.

If you have any questions before you book, just ask – we’re happy to help!

What Happens Next?

When we receive your payment, we will email you confirmation of your course booking.

We will then ask you to fill out a needs analysis so that we know more about your study aims and interests.  We may arrange a face-to-face or Skype chat to assess your English level and discuss your course.

  • more than 28 days before its commencement, all payment will be refunded, minus any bank transfer or administration fees.
  • between 28 and 14 days before its commencement, 50% of your course fees will be refunded, minus any bank transfer or administration fees.
