Course: 10 weeks, 20 hours/week, homestay, January 2018
Overall
This is a terrible school where the teachers are bullied and put down continuously, not by the academic management but by the Directors. The marketing team are absolutely horrible and they use false advertising to get the students into the college, take their money, and then provide them with a terrible experience. I have personally witnessed the marketing department even write 'fake' reviews about themselves on social media! At least 5 of the reviews are fake reviews, giving themselves 5 stars! It's hard to find any students who can say they receive excellent quality experience, mainly because the Company takes the student's money and doesn't provide the service. The poor teachers, who work really hard, are paid less than minimum wage while the Directors swan around in luxury cars. The Company also gives out long term visas to students who don't even attend the College, and then the marketing department gives them certificates claiming that they attended the classes. DO NOT work or study with this Company.

Pros
I feel sorry for the teachers, they earn less than the minimum wage as they don't get paid for preparation or marking
Cons
false advertising from the marketing department, brochure says max 16 students per class but they often have up to 22 students in a class. ETC International College also gave my friend a student visa for 12 months and giving him certificates every month.....but he has absconded and is living in Scotland!! This must be against immigration rules surely! The Director shows off absurd wealth with his fancy cars while the teachers cannot afford to even feed themselves or their families because they are paid less than the minimum wage! I know one of the teachers cannot afford any electricity and has nearly frozen to death this winter because of the such low pay.
