Our Summer Pre-Sessional English Programmes (PSP) will help you to develop your English language and study skills for your chosen degree programme. In Summer 2020 we will deliver these programmes completely online for students wishing to start a degree programme in Autumn 2020. 

Following successful completion of the PSP you will be able to use your results to apply for a visa to start your chosen degree programme here at Huddersfield in the UK. You will not need to take an IELTS test.

To deliver these programmes online we will use our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Every year our 20,000 students use this to support their studies. It is based around Brightspace and Zoom software. You will need to make sure you have a good internet connection to complete your studies. 

How we assess the length of your course:

PSP Courses run between 6 and 12 weeks depending on your current level of English. You would need to demonstrate this using one of the tests in the table below.

You can use any test result you have from the last two years to secure your place.
