On your first day you will have a written and spoken test to assess your level of English. We will also discuss with you what areas you hope to improve in when you studying at ELA.Induction Programme for New StudentsThis programme allocates a personal tutor (Personal Academic Advisor) to each student and explains the Personal Development Plan (PDP) which helps each student to organise his/her own learning as well maximize their participation to the programme effectively. The induction programme includes an introduction to GAUC facilities to support their learning path, such as small campus library, computer lab, as well as communal areas. A visit will be made to the local public library where they can get their library cards.
Students who are required to register with the Police according to the UKVI rules®ulations will be fully informed and supported with the relevant document for their appointments.
All students are invited to become a member of the student council where they will be encouraged to have their say on what happens during their time at GAU Canterbury. The council meet three times a term to discuss the design, delivery and quality of management of all aspects of the service that GAU Canterbury provides.
Students are invited to attend various events and activities organised by GAU Canterbury throughout the term. Details of the events will be displayed on the notice boards in the Campus and shared on the GAUC website.
