Please note that the fee includes the cost of the exam which you will take at our Windsor campus.

As an internationally recognised qualification a CAE certificate can significantly help your chances of gaining employment anywhere in the world. Cambridge exams are recognised by over 5,000 colleges, universities and government departments all over the world. So whether you are looking to improve your prospects for work or study or simply want to take your English to a very advanced level, then this is the course for you.
