Course description

Our English for Academic Purposes (EAPP) Pre-sessional course is available for between one and four terms (10–40 weeks) and will provide you with the required English language proficiency to progress onto a degree level course.

The length of course you take will depend on your current level of English.

The course offers a combination of academic English language and an introduction to academic study skills to help prepare you for further study in the UK. The course is divided into morning and afternoon sessions.

Morning sessions cover ‘core skills’ and focus on the four language skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking in an academic context. You will also focus on grammar, vocabulary and study skills.

In the afternoon, you will study different classes based on your level of skill, for example:

  • Culture and communication: Manchester People and Places, Machester Ideas and Innovations;
  • Reading for writing and speaking;
  • Listening for reading and speaking.

These classes are not optional and form part of your EAPP course.

You would normally be expected to study for 21 hours per week, which includes 14 hours of ‘core skills’ live learning lessons in classes of up to 16 students. You will also have two hours of live afternoon classes each week focussing on academic skills/culture and communication, plus integrated learning tasks to complete, which we recommend you spend at least one hour per day on.

In your core skills classes, you will also have individual or small group tutorials with your tutor most weeks. There will also be an optional online workshop each week, usually on a Wednesday afternoon.
