To ensure non-native speakers of English can keep up with other students and get the best out of their time at Warwick, we provide outstanding support to students who do not speak English as a first language and wish to improve their understanding of the language.
We have three main programmes of study:
- Pre-sessional English Programme - prepares students for postgraduate university study by developing their academic English and study skills.
- In-sessional English Classes - are additional academic English language classes for international students who are already studying for a degree at the University of Warwick.
- Undergraduate Diploma in English Language, Media & Intercultural Communication - is for students who are studying undergraduate programmes in their home countries and would benefit from the experience of spending one term overseas in an academic English language environment.
Courses are organised by the Centre for Applied Linguistics.
We offer courses throughout our academic terms to help non-native speakers of English improve their language skills while studying. Courses cover speaking and listening, essay-writing and dissertation-writing skills, pronunciation and much more. If English is not your first language, you are welcome to attend this programme.

If you’re a UK or EU resident, there are no application deadlines for postgraduate taught courses. But places are limited, so you should submit your application as early as possible.
If you’re from outside the EU, you may need to get a student visa. To make sure you have time to do this, the application deadline for all courses starting in September/October is 02 August 2023. However, places are limited in some departments so you should submit your application as soon as possible. Some departments also have earlier deadlines – so you should check the information in the Essential Information for each course.
