English Language Preparation
Improve your English language skills
If you meet the academic requirements but need help with your English language to meet the entry requirements for one of the International Study Centre programmes, you can take an English language course first.
If you start your studies with us while campuses remain closed, you will study our Online Pre-Sessional English Language Preparation programme. This will help you raise your English language skills to the level you need to start your International Foundation Year or Pre-Masters programme.
English Language support for undergraduate
Our English Language Preparation course helps to raise your English language skills to the level you need for the International Foundation Year.
English language support for postgraduate
Our English for Pre-Masters course helps to raise your English language skills to the level you need for the Pre-Masters programme. At the end of the English for Pre-Masters course, you will take an IELTS test to assess your level of English. You will progress to your chosen programme when you complete the course and achieve the required IELTS score.
Benefits of studying an English language preparation course
Studying an English language course for international students gives you an additional term to focus on your English and raise your IELTS level. Focusing on academic reading, writing, speaking and listening you should typically be able to increase your IELTS by 0.5 and be ready to start your academic programme with us.
You need to meet certain academic and English language requirements for entry to our English language courses. Check entry requirements for programmes.
