As a family run College, with a dedicated and experienced staff base we place client care at the heart of our philosophy.
It is our aim to know and meet the needs of each student that comes to MLS. To that end we offer a range of services that will assist in providing you with a wonderful stay, not only at MLS but also in the UK.
Most information you need to know is recorded in our student handbook, which will be sent to you in electronoc format on confirmation of your enrolment at MLS. The handbook contains important information about your study at MLS including details on our courses, services and what our expectations of you are during your study. A copy of the handbook is provided through the following link:
Some important elements of our service are highlighted below.
Reporting and Assessment
MLS offers a full reporting and assessment service.
You or your sponsor may request weekly or monthly progress reports, depending on your course duration, which will include details of your language level.
Sample reports are available on request.
Assessment is an integral part of any programme at MLS and we will assess your progress throughout and at the end of your programme. A summative report is available if you or your company require, which will indicate your achieved language level and (if relevant) certificate / diploma credit successes upon departure from MLS.
Throughout your time at MLS you will receive the support not only of your teachers and the client services staff but also a tutor. Your tutor will meet with you at least once a term to discuss your academic progress and will be available throughout your course to provide guidance in your studies.
As a full time MLS student, you will have access to MLS’ state of the art Sanako Language Laboratory. This is a digital learning centre giving you superb independent learning opportunities using the wide range of digital resources on offer at MLS. Each afternoon a senior MLS teacher will be available to assist you in using the digital equipment and also to offer further advice and guidance with your language learning.
Throughout the year, MLS offers free further language training to its students – events such as conversation clubs, film clubs, writing support sessions, pronunciation classes. You will need to keep an eye on our notice boards to find out what is happening each week.
MLS has offered University pathway courses and placement services for over twenty years. We have strong relationships with many UK Universities and our University counsellors will be pleased to assist you in finding a place at UK University. Please see our University pathways pages for more details.
Statement on Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults:
At MLS our prime responsibility is the welfare and well being of all the students in our care. It is the policy of this College to provide a secure and safe environment, enabling each person to experience a full and productive study experience with us.
All members of staff who come into contact with our students have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all and in particular regard to those under the age of 18 and adults who may be vulnerable. All international students, for whom English is a second language, and who are living in an unfamiliar culture, may at times be exposed to situations where they are vulnerable. We ensure that all our staff are familiar with and follow procedures for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of all of our students. All staff have induction training which includes child protection policies and procedures. Our staff are aware of possible signs and symptoms of people at risk and are provided with guidance on this.
