English Language Centre

All of our pre-sessional courses will run online in 2020 because of COVID-19

All elements of the course will mirror those we run on campus, so high standards in quality will be maintained.

Our very experienced teachers will guide you in developing your English language and academic skills in order to prepare you for your degree programme at the university.

Class sizes will be a maximum of 12, and the timetable will include interactive activities with discussions, in addition to working on tasks to develop your academic listening, reading and writing skills. 

We offer a range of courses to help you develop your academic English language skills – both before (pre-sessional courses) and during (term-time workshops) your studies.
