A short and intensive academic English preparation for students who are due to start an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at the University of Stirling
Why study Pre-sessional English?
Concentrating on academic English, this course is designed to:
- improve your English language proficiency in the core skills of listening, speaking,
- reading and writing, within a university context
- focus on academic English with subject-related work in your chosen area of study in a written project
- help you to study independently using our extensive online materials.
What's special about this course?
The Pre-Sessional course provides intensive English language preparation in a university environment. With highly experienced teachers, there is no better preparation for your next steps.
Depending on your current language level and degree programme requirements, you will be required to study either a 12 week (June to August) or six week (July to August) course. There is also a 3 week (August) course available if you already hold an unconditional offer of a place on a degree at the University of Stirling.
Who should apply for the Pre-sessional English programme?
Academically qualified students who have already been accepted into a University undergraduate or postgraduate course can use this course to improve their English quickly.
Where will it take me?
Assuming you have already met the University's academic entry requirements (and any other outstanding conditions), successfully completing the Pre-Sessional English course fulfils the English language conditions of your offer and will allow you to progress to your university course, without needing to retake the IELTS test.
