The aim of the Koya University English Language Centre is to provide high quality education which prepares students for further study, equipping them with the academic and linguistic tools necessary for the transition to higher education in an institution in which English is the preferred medium of communication.

KUECL understands that our primary objective is to prepare students for entry to higher education and we propose to address this objective through two main aims:

  • First, to develop the student’s English language abilities to at least the minimum required for entry to, and engagement in, their Degree i.e. IETLS 5.0 or higher.

  • Second, to enhance study skills to a level appropriate for successful engagement in Higher Education.

KUECL’s educational philosophy is that student needs are best met through a communicative and action-orientated approach which focuses upon developing the language skills which will be needed in a higher education context. This approach encourages the student to reflect upon their own current capabilities and to share responsibility for identifying and addressing areas which require development. Such an approach supports also the development of skills and behaviour needed for successful engagement in higher education.
