Teachers at INTO GCU

Success begins in the classroom

Our teachers understand your needs. They’re dedicated to your success. If you need advice, you can approach them for help with any academic questions or issues as you progress.

You’ll learn from teachers who are highly experienced. Many of them have taught in universities or worked in their fields of expertise before they joined INTO. And, they’ll have experience teaching international students just like you.

One-to-one support

Feeling anxious about the different learning style in the UK? Don’t worry, our teachers will help you adapt to your new environment. You’ll be introduced to lectures and seminars in smaller groups, meaning you’ll get more one-to-one support.

You’ll be guided on how to conduct your own research and plan your projects, to help you build the skills you need to succeed at University. Your teachers will teach you how to reference your sources and structure your academic essays, with constructive feedback to help you be the best you can be.

With their support, you’ll finish your course filled with confidence and knowledge. You’ll be ready to take on your next challenge.
