Pre-Sessional English

 

Our Pre-Sessional English Programmes (PSP) will help you to develop your English language and study skills for your chosen degree programme. Courses run between 4 weeks and 6 months depending on your prior level of English, and there are two sets of intakes that allow for degree start dates in September or January.

 

On our Pre-Sessional English Programmes you will:

  • Have the opportunity to progress from the PSP to the University, like over 400 students who do this every year
  • Be given the opportunity to meet the English language requirements for your chosen degree course without the need to re-take IELTS at the end of the programme
  • Be assessed through a range of assignments, presentations and tests
  • Have full access to all the University’s facilities including the library, computers and sports centre
  • Find full details about the programme in our Course Finder pages of the website


Please download this Pre-Sessional Programmes leaflet for further details.

 

Please note in order to be considered for a Pre-Sessional English course you will normally need to have obtained an appropriate UKVI approved IELTS. For more information or for further clarification, please contact the International Office.
