Pre-sessional courses if you have IELTS 6.5, minimum 6.0 in each skill

Find out about your course options and how to apply.

If you have a combined offer for your degree programme, your Faculty or School will tell you which course you need to do, and they will enrol you.

If you have a conditional offer for your degree programme, you will need to apply for the course which best meets your needs. As a student with a conditional (standalone) offer, you must take an IELTS Academic English test for UKVI purposes (IELTS SELT) at one of the new UKVI approved test centres in order to get your study (Tier 4) visa.

Please make sure that you apply for your Pre-sessional course at least 5 weeks before the start date. You will need to be 18 years of age by the time the course starts.

You need IELTS 7.0 overall, minimum 6.5 in each skill

The Skills Centre has its own grading system. Your teachers will use this to assess your readiness for academic study in the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

5 week course applications are made directly through the Faculty or School. You can find the email address that you need in the table below.
