Academic Student Management

At ISE students experience excellent teaching in mixed-nationality classes. Our teachers, some of whom are also teacher trainers, have been carefully chosen for their student-centred approach, experience and proven ability to help students learn in a stimulating and lively environment.

Academic progress is monitored by senior teachers. ISE teachers also help you to design a personal study plan to achieve particular goals such as passing an exam or improving a language weakness.

All ISE staff are committed to ensuring that you enjoy an excellent course with successful results.
