Course content - 10-week pre-sessional (online)

You will focus on the key academic skills and language you will need to succeed in your future studies with us.

After finishing the course, I did not feel unfamiliar or nervous at the beginning of my degree programme. The Pre-sessional course is a good way to adapt to university life when you are an international student.

The course aims to:

  • raise your level of English language proficiency and academic skills;
  • improve your confidence working in an academic environment;
  • help to prepare you for studying at this University.

In order to succeed on the course, you must have a quiet place to study. You will need to have your webcam turned on and be able to talk with other students.
