English language preparation

Our Pre-Sessional English Programmes will help you to develop your English language and study skills to help you progress on to your chosen degree at the University of Huddersfield.  

Studying for a Pre-Sessional English Programme

Our Pre-Sessional English Programme is delivered virtually. The courses run between 6 weeks and 12 weeks depending on your current level of English. 

As the Pre-sessional English Programme is delivered through distance learning, you will not need a Student visa to study with us.

There are two intake options that allow you to start your degree in either September or January.

Why study a course?

"Our Pre-Sessional English Programmes aim to help you develop your English language and academic study skills for your chosen degree course; including how to write in the correct academic style and present to academics and peers."
