Before you start your degree course
The University's degree courses have an IELTS requirement. Our pre-sessional courses help you meet your IELTS target. The table below gives an example of how this works. The courses finish in time to start your course in September or January.
|Current IELTS score||Required IELTS score||Which pre-sessional course(s) you study||How long you study an English language course for|
|IELTS 5.5||6||Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes||Five weeks|
|IELTS 5||6||Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes||Ten weeks|
|IELTS 4||6||Learning English for Academic Purposes (LEAP) then Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (PEAP)||LEAP plus the 10/5 weeks PEAP course|
During your degree course
It's a good idea to study English while you're doing your course. We offer English for academic purposes (EAP) classes and one-to-one tutorials as part of the University English Scheme. You don't need to apply for these courses until you have started your degree here.
