BBELS is an authorised Cambridge Exam centre - in central Byron Bay.


Cambridge examinations provide successful students with an internationally recognised certificate of English Language proficiency. Our course prepares students for the FCE, CAE and CPE Cambridge Examinations held each year in March, June, August and December. Lessons cover a variety of topic-based language suited to ‘real life’ situations which students can use outside the classroom. The course focuses on exam techniques for reading, writing, listening, speaking and the use of English, including regular practice exams.


BBELS has been a market leader in the provision of Cambridge exam preparation courses in Byron Bay since 2001. We are proud of the high quality of our Cambridge teaching services.
