English Language Preparation

Improve your English

If your level of English language does not meet the entry requirement for our International Foundation Year, you can join our English Language Preparation programme for one or two terms. At the end of the programme, you will be ready to start the International Foundation Year.

What is English Language Preparation?

Our English Language Preparation programme helps you to improve your English language skills to the level needed for the International Foundation Year. The English Language Preparation programme is taught at the International Study Centre.

An English Language Preparation programme lasts for either one or two terms, depending on your level of English. When you complete your English Language Preparation and achieve the required grades, you can progress to the International Foundation Year. You will not need to retake your Academic IELTS for UKVI.
