The EP Masterclass Programme

The EP Masterclass Programme is a series of 12 sessions offered free of charge to all students studying at English Path. The sessions run on 12-week cycle and consist of a weekly lecture or workshop which is usually 1 to 1.5 hours in length.

The aim of the sessions is to provide students with necessary academic, business, and soft skills so that they can improve their career prospects or achieve study goals. The sessions may cover topics such as academic writing skills, building confidence for public speaking and careers advice.

Sessions include careers workshops, study skills and guest lectures provided by English Path staff and our sister higher education provider, GBS. 

We strongly believe that you should have access to, not only a fantastic English education but also the skills to help you make the most of your new language knowledge.

Every single Masterclass is complimentary and we encourage you to take part in these classes alongside our fantastic activity programme.
