Available Courses - Pre-sessional English

You can use the tables below to calculate the length of course you will need. Please note, the information in the tables is provided as a guide and some exceptions may apply. Courses can be cancelled if the minimum number of students required to run the course is not met. We advise you to check the specific English requirements of your intended destination course.

All of your SELT scores (or for online courses only, other recognised English language exam scores) will be considered – reading, writing, speaking and listening. In order to be successful in your degree, you will need to be able to use all four English language skills.

Please note, the enrolment start dates stated below are subject to change. For face-to-face courses delivered on campus in Coventry, please check your emails for confirmed enrolment dates before travelling to the UK.

Details of national holidays and study breaks can be found on our PSE page, in the 'other information' tab.
