Pre-Sessional English Programme

Pre-Sessional English Programme

Prepare linguistically and culturally for your degree studies at Warwick.

Our Pre-sessional courses are designed for students who have an offer to study for a degree at the University of Warwick and whose first language is not English. Choosing to study a Pre-sessional English course with us is a great alternative way to meet your outstanding language condition.

All courses focus on the specific academic language and study skills that you will need so that you can follow and engage in your degree subject, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level. You will have the opportunity to engage with your peers both inside and outside the classroom - alongside your studies there will be cultural and social activities to take part in.

Courses include on-campus or online options for postgraduate offer-holders, and an online-only option for undergraduate offer-holders.
