Support for Students with English as a Foreign Language
All international students will, if appropriate, take part in weekly structured classes within the College’s English department. These classes will further develop your range of language skills and you will be encouraged to work towards improving your IELTS.
Your existing standard of written and spoken English will be assessed initially and you will have class times allocated to you. We also offer language workshops for students who wish to receive additional specialist support.
You will be encouraged to participate in enrichment activities across the College and to take part in subject societies to gain a wider appreciation of British culture to help you prepare for university or employment.
Every student at Richard Huish College is assigned a Personal Tutor when they arrive. Your tutor will help you manage your studies whilst at Huish and provide you with both academic and pastoral support.
Advice, guidance and support are outstanding. High quality pastoral and additional support are readily available. Students' progress is monitored frequently and effectively.
