  • IELTS Preparatory Course

The International English Language Testing System — or IELTS for short — is a standardised test of your competence in the English language. It is meant for non-native speakers who want to study in English at a university or college. Some immigration authorities also expect an IELTS pass as one of the entry requirements.

The minimum university requirement is usually an overall IELTS band score of 5, 6 or 7; these bands correspond to modest, competent and good user of English in all of the language functions: listening, reading, writing and speaking. More and more universities and colleges in Europe and Australia require 6.5 for direct entry into a degree programme.

Since so much depends on achieving a high score, most candidates will prepare for their IELTS test by attending a course such as the one offered by BERJAYA Language Centre.

What Our Students Say

Lecturers were patient, friendly and supportive. I really like the lecturers here. They gave me a very good learning experience. I would like to say “THANK YOU” to them for teaching me and giving me their best. IVEP lecturers help us to build our confidence so that we can achieve our highest potential."

Ta Thi Quynh Nhu, Cindy (Vietnam)

"I came to BERJAYA University College (BUC) to take up Masters of Business Administration (MBA). However, my English language proficiency did not meet the entry requirement. Therefore, I enrolled in Intensive English Programme (IVEP). I find that BUC is my second family because all IVEP lecturers were very professional. They were very helpful and took care of us just like their family members. Besides encouraging me, the lecturers also motivated my classmates. We not only improved a lot in the mastery of language but also in thinking skills. Lecturers also provided complimentary IELTS Preparation Course to prepare us for IELTS test and I scored a Band 6. Without these dedicated lecturers, I could not join MBA within 8 months. With a strong English language foundation from IVEP course, I was able to score a CGPA of 3.50 in my MBA programme. A big ‘Thank You’ to all the lecturers. I really appreciated your time, effort and confidence in me."

But, with the unique immersion teaching methodology, patient and supportive team of lecturers and the learning environment, I became motivated to master the English language. The IELTS Preparation Course prepared me to go through the test successfully. I obtained an IELTS band score of 5.0 and now I am pursuing Bachelor of Hospitality Management Programme.

"I had a chance to study in Berjaya University College (BUC). I joined the Intensive English Programme (IVEP) and this was such a memorable moment I would never ever forget during my student's life in Kuala Lumpur because I scored IELTS Band 5.5 within 8 months of study. This miracle happened because of a dedicated, caring and supportive team of IVEP lecturers. The lecturers worked the extra miles to prepare me for IELTS test. To be honest, I feel that BUC is like my second home where I was well taken care of not only in the pursuit of knowledge but also in the confidence I gained during the programme. Lastly, I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to all my IVEP lecturers who played significant roles for making my dream come true. "
