The pre-sessional programmes aim to help you transition more comfortably to UK academic culture, conventions and expectations.

The primary aim of our pre-sessional programmes is to prepare international students for the demands of their programme of study by:

  • increasing students’ overall level of English language proficiency;
  • equipping students with the academic English and study skills required to cope with the learning demands of a Loughborough degree programme; and
  • assisting students’ integration into the British social and academic environment.
