Taught part-time, this course is suitable for students who wish to progress to higher level studies but do not wish to undertake the final examination associated with Higher English. For example, some colleges accept this as an alternative to Higher English

as an entry requirement for

teacher training courses

The course is also

designed to appeal to those students looking for more immediate commercial opportunities. The Communications 4 unit aims to help students produce and evaluate spoken and written communication with a practical bias, whereas Literature 1 offers an exploration of drama, prose and poetry.

Where will I study?

The course will be taught - one 2 hour session a week for 30 weeks - at your local centre. Students will also be expected to undertake around 2 hours self study each week in addition to the taught class. You will spend approximately two thirds of your time on Communications 4 and one third of your time on Literature 1.

What qualifications do I need to enrol on this course? Students will normally be expected to have achieved English at Level 5 (Intermediate 2) or to have undertaken the college’s Creative Writing unit.

How can I continue to further my studies? Together these two courses are accepted by a number of colleges and universities as an equivalent qualification to Higher English. They can thus serve as an entry qualification for a range of Higher National level and Degree courses.
