Cambridge Assessment English Exams
The University of Sheffield English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC) is an authorised centre for Cambridge Assessment English examinations. Cambridge Assessment English is a department of the University of Cambridge and part of the Cambridge Assessment group set up in 1858.
According to their website, 'Cambridge Assessment English offers the world's leading range of certificates for learners and teachers of English - taken by over three million people in 130 countries.'
These certificates are recognised by a huge variety of professional, educational and governmental organisations, including the University of Sheffield.
You can apply to just take the exam in Sheffield at the ELTC or choose one of our preparation classes followed by the exam.
A preparation class may give you a better chance of success in the exam, in particular, if you have never taken one before or know little about the skills involved.
If you just want to take the Cambridge exam without following a preparation class, please carry on reading.
Part-time preparation classes are also available.
