Exam Preparation

If you are thinking of studying or living abroad, this course specializes in preparing students for a good exam score.

At English Language School of Cape Town you can prepare and write your TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) exam. The TOEFL test measures your ability to understand and use English at university level and is recognised by over 8,000 institutions in more than 130 countries.

Cambridge English exams are accepted by over 13,500 universities, employers and governments around the world. Our exams can open doors to higher education, improve employment opportunities, and because they are globally recognised, can increase learners’ choices for study or work. ELS of Cape Town will assist students with their enrolment at a University or College in Cape Town. All foreign qualifications will need to be approved by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). A study permit for the new institution will need to be applied for at Home Affairs. Students may be required to show results from a recent IELTS or TOEFL exam. A university may request for the PTEEP (Placement Test in English for Educational Purposes) to be written at the university.
