Our school runs summer English language courses at three levels, from beginner to advanced.

Teachers, Is the word "advanced" in this sentence a noun or an ajective? I think it is a noun. Because "beginner" is a noun, advanced should be a noun. But I found out that it only can be used as a verb or an ajective when I checked it out in the dictionary.

Both "beginner" and "advanced" are adjectives modifying the word courses.

You may think it weird to have adjectives after a preposition. However, the word "courses" is implied and not shown as it is redundant.
