ESOL courses are for people who are, or are intending to become, long-term UK residents and meet the eligibility criteria specified by the UK Government. The criteria include people who have been resident in the United Kingdom or other European Union countries for three years or more; or are refugees; or are married to an EU citizen and resident in the UK. Documentary evidence will be required. More details are available at the screening interview (see below).
No initial formal qualifications or experience are required, but students will be required to attend an initial screening interview in order to identify which ESOL course is most appropriate.
