We have designed all our courses to enable learners to progress as far as possible. However, the highest stage we can offer in a language is conditional on sufficient levels of demand.
Progression from Stage 1:
You do not need to have taken or passed the end of Trinity term optional assessments to progress to Stage 2, but it is highly recommended. Please note that if you do not enrol for a course beyond the completion of one Part, you will no longer have access to the materials for the course on Canvas when the next Part starts.
Progression from an Academic to another pathway:
Our pathways are designed to give you maximum flexibility in terms of changing the course and intensity of your learning journey; however, as Academic courses focus exclusively on reading competence, opting to progress on another pathway will require either some upskilling or a transition to a similar level course.
If you have finished Academic Stage 1 Part 3 you can progress to General Stage 2 Part 1 or Fast Track 2+3, but you will need to practise listening and speaking. You could consider the option of taking a Stage 1 Part 3 course at the end of Trinity term to support your transition.
If you have finished Academic Stage 2 Part 3 you can progress to General Stage 3 Part 1, General Stage 2 Part 1, Fast Track Stage 2+3 or 3+4 depending on your speaking and listening skills.
We advise that you seek advice from your tutor with regards to your progression options at the end of the course or prior to re enrolment.
