However, there is no obligation to take an exam: students wishing to improve their level of English for professional purposes are also welcome on the course. The courses will include classes on marketing, production, business administration, business finance and human resources.

What level of English is required to study on the BEC Course?
CCES teaches the BEC course at Pre-Intermediate (BEC Preliminary), Upper-Intermediate (BEC Vantage) and Advanced level (BEC Higher). All students will be given a test and consultation to make sure that they are at a level suitable for the course, and will be advised which exam they should think of taking.
