What are tailor-made courses?
 
Tailor-made courses are for groups (a minimum of six participants) and we design the content of the programme to meet your needs and objectives. The courses are designed and delivered by NILE’s expert academic team, and can cover a wide range of language education areas, either based around our existing programmes or created especially for you.
Course delivery mode can be face-to-face in Norwich  (England), Galway (Ireland) or St. Julian’s (Malta) or hosted by you in your own institution. Alternatively, a tailor-made course can be fully online on our unique combination of synchronous and asynchronous platforms… or a blend of online and face-to-face modes to suit your requirements.
Course length and timing can be adapted to your needs too – from one week in Norwich to six months part-time online, and everything in between!
Course content can focus on language education – English for Teachers, English for Professional Purposes, or English for Academic Purposes, for example – or on teacher education – from English-Medium Instruction to CLIL to Pre-Primary Education to Materials Development to Trainer Development – and so much more!
Course costs are based on number of participants, course content and additional options, and courses in Ireland and Malta are eligible for Erasmus+ funding.
 
Tailor-made face-to-face programmes
 
In addition to the excellent academic programmes and full use of all the resources in our centres, we also offer a range of additional features for you to design your ideal course:

-          Placement and exit testing designed for your group

Tailor-made online / blended programmes
 
Our tailor-made online and blended programmes can be based on an existing <link NILE Online courses> or can be created from a mix of units from different courses to design the content you need for your tailor-made course. As well as the fantastic synchronous and asynchronous activities on our online platforms (which can also be tailored to your timing needs), you can choose from a range of additional features to build your own bespoke course:
