Pre-sessional English language tuition for postgraduate taught students

Students who do not meet the University's English language requirements may (at the discretion of schools) 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.
