English Language programmes

There are many reasons for choosing to study English with us.  You may just want to improve your English Language skills or perhaps you have not met our English language requirements to study a degree course with us.  If you have not met the English language requirements to study an undergraduate or a postgraduate degree course with us, you may be eligible for one of our pre-sessional English language courses.  

For Pre-sessional English Language courses, please note that all international applicants will be required to have a SELT (UKVI academic IELTS) as per UKVI (UK Visa & Immigration) regulations.   

For our September 2017 enrolment, we offer 8 and 12 week pre-sessional English Language courses for students who have been accepted on an undergraduate or postgraduate course with us.  These courses help you prepare for study at the university and for life in the UK.
