3 steps to register for a course

1. Placement test

Students who wish to skip the beginner course are required to take a language assessment test (placement test). The results of the test are valid for two years. Those, who wish to skip ahead to a more advanced level without taking the courses in succession, are also required to take a placement test.

See the grey info box on the right for the upcoming placement test dates.

2. Registration

Students register for courses online. The registration period is indicated in the grey info box on the right. During this period, go to the course schedule table and click on the course in which you wish to enroll; this will take you to the registration form.

3. Payment of course fee

The registration process is completed with payment of the course fee. The dates during which you need to come to the language centre to pay the course fee are indicated in the grey info box on the right.
