Frequently Asked Questions

This course is designed for working professionals who, despite working remotely and not being able to travel, still understand the importance of developing themselves at work, and are looking to improve their English and communication skills.

After registration, participants on this course programme will receive:

  1. a pre-course questionnaire which will help your trainer to learn about your background
  2. information about the course to help you get the most out of your online learning experience

At the end of the course, you will:

  • have improved your spoken confidence and fluency
  • have developed your professional English language skills
  • have enhanced your remote communication skills
  • have improved your interpersonal skills
  • have expanded your network with other likeminded professionals

Absolutely. The course ends with an evaluation session, in which learners are asked to reflect upon what they have learned on the course. From these reflections, a Personal Development Action Plan is created, which provides the learner with a roadmap that they can use to continue implementing what they have studied on the course into their daily working lives. They will also be invited to join the York Associates Community, which offers numerous opportunties for networking and contact with trainers, fellow colleagues, and participants from other courses. Learners will also continue to have access to the online language learning platform once their live training sessions have ended.

If you are from a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, you will need a visa. Students from certain countries do not need to apply for a visa before arriving in the UK. You can check if you need to apply for a visa on the UK Visas and Immigration website.

In the unlikely event of a course not recruiting sufficient numbers you would be offered an alternative.
