C1 Advanced (formerly CAE) at the Victoria School of English

Our experienced, professional and qualified teachers (who have the Cambridge Diploma teaching qualification), will help you prepare for the C1 Advanced exam in a class of up to 12 people. This means you’ll get the attention you need and have the space to ask the question that may not be possible in a larger class.

Choose from three courses which also includes a special 4 week intensive course that ends the day before the exam. This course combines general English lessons in the morning (3 hours) with the C1 Advanced exam course in the afternoon (3 hours). This is 120 hours of guided classroom study. Add this to your own study and homework assignments and you’ll be in a strong position to get the grade you need.
