The Cambridge First Certificate of English (FCE) Exam Preparation Course is the best way of proving to a potential employer that you speak, read, write and can understand English to a sufficient level to work in an English-speaking company. We believe this essential addition to your CV will enhance your chances of finding a job, if you are coming from outside the UK to find employment.

This globally accepted English language qualification is run here at the Islington Centre for English (ICE), London throughout the year.

Our evening classes are aimed towards gaining a good grade in the FCE exam and you will learn the vocabulary, grammar and exam skills you need to succeed. Students often find that working towards the FCE qualification, with the exam at the end, helps to keep them motivated to concentrate on their learning, ensuring they make the best progress possible.

At ICE, class sizes are small (with a maximum of 15 students) and are taught by tutors who are experienced, native English speakers. The Cambridge First Certificate runs on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6.30-8.30pm (4 hours of teaching time with breaks).

Exam enrolment itself will be taken care of by the college and students will pay the exam enrolment fee of £160 (paper based exam) or £160 (computer based), plus a £15 registration fee.

This course will leave you plenty of free time to take paid employment during the day or explore London. Why not join our fun, weekly social trips and outings so you can make new friends whilst you are here!

You can enrol anytime. As one of the best value English classes in London, we welcome potential students who may wish to join us for a free trial class. Why not contact us at Islington Centre for English, London to arrange a time!

Please note, Cambridge exam preparation courses only run when we have sufficient numbers of students.
