Cambridge Examinations

Cambridge English exams are recognised by schools, universities and employers worldwide, they do not expire and there are three to choose from: First Certificate in English (FCE), Advanced (CAE) and Proficiency (CPE).


FCE proves you have reached B2 (Upper Intermediate) level of English and can use every day written and spoken English for work or study purposes. The programme will develop every aspect of your English through engaging lessons and activities, from studying idioms and modal verbs to debating ideas and writing essays at a high language level.


CAE demonstrates that you are at C1 (Advanced) level of English needed for academic and professional success. As you prepare for the exam, you’ll study complex grammar and advanced-level vocabulary and learn how to write proposals, conduct research and communicate effectively in an international workplace.


CPE (UK only) demonstrates that you have the advanced skills necessary to function effectively in almost every English speaking context. As you prepare for the exam, you’ll need to be ready to think intensively about the English language in a variety of professional and academic contexts, transposing your thoughts into different registers of language, looking for the most suitable phrasing for each situation.
