Cambridge Exam Course

 

An internationally recognized language is now an integral part of the CV, not only to convince your future employer of your qualities but even if you just simply want to improve your English or study at a university in the English-speaking country, you should opt for a Cambridge exam.

Our Language Schools in England, Ireland and America give you the opportunity to prepare intensively for the Cambridge exam. Our experienced teachers will support and offer you any help which you will need in preparation for this exam.

What is the Cambridge Exam?

The Cambridge exams are internationally recognised by educational institutions and companies as official evidence that you have qualified English language skills. There are five different levels for this exam. 

StudyTravel gives you the fantastic chance to study in one of our partner schools around the world to prepare you in an English language course at one of the 3 highest exam: either the "First Certificate of English (FCE), the" Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) "or the" Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE). All exams are recognized worldwide and consist of five papers, each part making up 20% of the final result. Unlike other language diplomas, the Cambridge exam never loses its validity.

As the actual exam is only offered a few times a year, we would advise you to plan ahead in advance, that is to say, carefully plan the dates of your preparation course in order to coincide with the actual dates of the exam. 

What levels are there?

 

First Certificate of English

The FCE is an exam at the intermediate level, and corresponds to Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If you are able to communicate in everyday situations, as well as in work and also study with good English, then you should opt for the First Certificate of English.
