At Rose of York Language School, we understand that life can be busy. This is why we have part-time courses to offer. So, if you work, study, or, have children to look after, we have English Course options to suit all timetables.
We have numerous courses available for our Part-Time students. These include General English, Business English and Exam Preparation. Therefore, students who cannot (or prefer not to) commit to studying Full-Time have a range of options open to them. Full-Time classes are courses that have a total of 15 hours or more of class time. Please note that if you need to apply for a student visa, you cannot study Part-Time Courses. You must meet the minimum requirement of 15 hours per week.
All Part-Time classes are combined with our Full-Time students. Therefore, students can still integrate with others from around the world and interact with like-minded students. Furthermore, students can speak with their teachers regarding the content of lessons that are not attended. This results in the encouragement of further self-study.
Our Part-Time Options
Students can choose to study 2, 3, or 4 days per week in the morning or in the afternoon. This, ultimately, depends on the student’s needs and goals. Our Part-Time courses include General English, Business English and Exam Preparation (IELTS or Cambridge Exams).
Standard Part-Time Courses
|Lessons per week||Hours per week||Morning Option||Afternoon Option|
|4 Days||16 Lessons||12 Hours||09:00-12:15||13:45-17:00|
|3 Days||12 Lessons||9 Hours|
|2 Days||8 Lessons||6 Hours|
Students can choose to attend class on the days that best suit them. Additionally, these days can change according to a student’s schedule. For example, if your rota at work changes, your classes can change in response. However, please note that classes cannot be transferred to another week.
Booster Classes are specifically designed, intensive classes that focus on a single skill. When learning English, students’ skills improve at different rates. So, students can devote more time to individual skills that they feel less confident in.
These classes are designed to supplement your study and to increase your learning potential by focusing on key areas of identified development. The Booster Classes are personalised and very useful.
The Booster Classes are: conversation, pronunciation, writing skills, business proficiency and exam skills. You can choose your Booster Classes and prioritise them based on the needs identified by you and your teacher. For example, if you feel like Pronunciation is your weak point, you can add a pronunciation Booster to your Standard Course to help you improve in this area.
|Booster||Lessons per week||Hours per week||Class Time|
|Booster 1||5 Lessons||3 Hours + 45 min||12:55-13:40|
|Booster 2||5 Lessons||3 Hours + 45 min||13:45-14:30|
|Booster 1 + 2||10 Lessons||7 Hours + 30 min||12:55-14:30|
Benefits of Part-Time Study
By enrolling on one of our Part-Time courses, students will have the flexibility to organise their week. Additionally, through studying part-time, students can meet new people from around the world. We know that moving to a new city with a different language can be challenging. But, here at Rose of York, you can meet people in similar situations and make friends. Finally, we offer a social programme to all students who are enrolled with us. This offers a great opportunity to explore the city and to get to know our teachers in a more informal environment.
