Anglia Examinations Colombia offer paper-based exam sessions 4 times a year and computer-based exam sessions every month, which means all of our exams can also be done 100% online from the comfort of the candidates’ homes.
We have a team of Anglia official speaking assessors and examiners physically based in Colombia.
Anglia Colombia visit English language exam centres regularly to provide our members with updated materials, hold meetings with teachers and heads of centres or parents and be present at certificate presentation ceremonies.
We keep a very active role contacting potential new exam centres as well as seeking University recognition. The Colombian Ministry of Education already recognises and accepts our qualifications across the country.
Social media is another active area for Anglia Colombia which allows us to keep our members updated.
We also organise study trips to Chichester College, where Anglia headquarters are located. Many Colombian students and teachers already joined our programmes and completed either a course of English as a Foreign Language or a Teacher Training Course in the UK with us.
