Services for education providers

With over 40 years' experience of providing language education and support to professionals and students, we have a huge amount of expertise that can benefit your organisation, colleagues and students.

Work with the highly qualified staff in the International Study and Language Institute (ISLI) at Reading to develop your services and staff.

Professional development courses

If you work in education, our professional development courses can help you in the areas of:

  • teaching English as a second or foreign language
  • using English as a medium of instruction
  • delivering student services.

Visiting Student Programme: A taste of UK higher education

If your students are interested in experiencing life in a UK university, we can design a bespoke course for you that aims to improve their English language skills, introduce them to British culture and give them the opportunity to study specific University subjects.

InForm: A jounal for International Foundation Programme professionals

InForm is a journal of teaching- and learning-related good practice for members of the academic community associated with International Foundation Programmes (IFPs).  It is produced under the auspices of the IFP at Reading, with the aim of publishing articles from the wider IFP sector.

Homestay hosting

Many of the participants on our short courses, such as our professional development courses and Visiting Student Programme, choose to stay with a local host family.

We would love to hear from you if you live in the RG1, RG5 or RG6 postcode area and are interested in offering accommodation, at market rates, to an international student.
