Self Access Study

Self access study (working on your own) is also an important part of your programme at CES. During your studies, CES encourages you to make full use of the self-access study centre, which is opened from 14:00 to 16:45, from Monday to Friday.

During the self access study, one of the CES teachers is on duty to help you with any specific questions you may encounter while using the self-study facilities.
