Pre-sessional English Language Tuition for research students
Students who do not meet the University's English language requirements may, at the discretion of academic schools/departments, be admitted onto a pre-sessional English language programme as an alternative way to satisfy the requirements.
Details of the IELTS requirements for pre-sessional programmes can be found below. Because the pre-sessional programmes are being delivered online in 2021, students may also use the following English language tests:
- TOEFL iBT (centre-based and Home edition),
- Pearson Test of English (Academic).
- LanguageCert (centre-based and online).
For guidance on specific requirements for the 11 and 6 week pre-sessional programme for these tests, please email us.
