English Pre-Sessional Courses
Pre sessional English
Applying to university on English speaking courses requires applicants to have a certain level of English proficiency. It is essential to consider your English language skills. Most foundation courses require you to have a minimum IELTS score of 5.0 overall. For undergraduate degree entry the required level is usually 6.0 or higher. A pre sessional English course might be the answer.
Uni Direct can advise you on the requirements for the course you want to study. Then, if needed, we can help you find a course to improve your English language skills.
Many universities offer pre sessional English courses. These are aimed at helping students meet the English language skills required to undertake a foundation course, undergraduate, or postgraduate study. We can identify suitable pre sessional English courses for you. Course lengths range from 6-19 weeks, depending on your current level of English, and the degree course you want to study.
Supporting you to secure the right course
We can also help you identify a suitable English language course aimed at preparing you for the IELTS test. This will ensure you meet the conditions of your offer to study at university in the UK.
Some universities will still consider you if you don’t meet the IELTS requirements for a course, if you undertake a pre sessional English course at their institution before you start. Our advisers can help you review your English language skills and suitability for a pre sessional English course or IELTS course.
