Preparatory English / English Foundation Program

This 10-week Preparatory English Programme (PEP) is an intensive course designed for hospitality, global or culinary management students whose English does not yet meet the entry requirements of their chosen program. 

The program is offered at three different levels to ensure students maximise
their development before starting a full academic program. The Preparatory English Programme is a dynamic course involving active learning that promotes English listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Key academic skills such as brainstorming ( generating ideas ), outlining, drafting and structuring will also be internalized by students through the activities undertaken throughout the 10 weeks.
Our Preparatory English Programme comprises of 15 -20 hours of tutor contact per week from Monday to Friday. Small classes ensure that attention is given to each individual’s unique ability in each of the four key language areas. This programme can only be offered to certain nationalities who have no restriction in obtaining a Swiss study visa with an English level below the standard entry requirements.
