This year, we are also offering a 10-week Pre-sessional course with an April start date. The course content is the same as the 10-week course starting in July, but with an earlier start date. Please note that you can only study on one Pre-sessional course. If you choose to study in April, you would not be able to attend the July or August Pre-sessional courses. 

To be eligible, you must already hold an offer for a degree course at The University of Manchester, or another UK university. If you hold an offer from another UK university, please check with the admissions contacts at that university to confirm they will accept the results of a University of Manchester Pre-sessional course, before you apply.
