Bangkok--14 Mar--New Cambridge Institute
New Cambridge Institute (Thailand) a world class language centre and leading overseas education consultancy launches the in-country pre sessional project with Birmingham City University.

Mr Bhongsakara Eiam-ong, Director of New Cambridge Institute (Thailand) disclosed information about the in country Pre Sessional “…This is the 2nd year that New Cambridge joins with Birmingham City to run a pre sessional course in Thailand. The objective is to prepare Thai students to have the right level of English before they even leave Thailand to further their Master’s degree in the UK. Meanwhile, the UK government announced the regulation for Visa application that the applicants should have a minimum 5.5 IELTS. For this reason, there were many Thai students who had to fly back to their home country before starting the Master’s degree programme because their English level did not meet the requirement of UKBA. For this reason, Birmingham City University initiated this project to conduct an English pre sessional class at New Cambridge at the 14th Fl, ZEN office @ Central World, the central location in Bangkok. Students will be taught by a teacher from Birmingham City University and teachers of New Cambridge, called “Birmingham City University Certified Teachers”.

The 4 distinctive points of our in country pre sessional courses are:

1. To improve the English language skills within a short period of time (8 weeks or 14 weeks)and help students to improve their IELTS score by 0.5 – 1.0 in an “English-speaking only” environment

2. To save cost of living 100,000 – 200,000 THB
3. To be able to use the exit English level and apply to many other leading universities in the Navitas group. For more information, click
