You Don’t need IELTS to get into University

COVID has brought about many changes for international students, from learning online to navigating travel restrictions, to making difficult decisions about your future. One of the big positive changes, however, is that for proof of English, the pandemic has forced universities into looking at alternative acceptable assessments. Online English testing, whilst previously frowned upon by universities is now something they have had to reconsider.

In my previous job I spent a lot of my time Skyping into Libya. My colleagues and I piloted and then developed an online teaching and teacher training model to support teachers and students living in Libya’s conflict situation. We couldn’t travel around Libya but wanted to give opportunities to people across the whole country. It was incredibly rewarding.

Teaching Online

For the last 8 years, teaching English has meant preparing my materials for students that I was going to be standing in front and interacting with, in a classroom face to face. This week for the first time ever, I’ve had to change the way I deliver classes and get behind the computer ready for online teaching.

Did you know that most of your learning takes place outside of the classroom?

A student who knows how to learn is often able to improve more quickly and successfully.   Being proactive in your studies not only helps you progress better but can also help you later in your life – in your career, in the workplace, and socially.
