Here at the Brunel Language Centre, our aim is to help our students achieve the English Language scores they need to progress onto their chosen LBIC course.

Improving language skills can take time. The length of English Language course that a student requires will be determined by their current English Language level in addition to the entry requirements for their chosen academic course.
