Pre-Sessional English

This course will provide you with short and intensive preparation in academic English. It's suitable for you if you're already academically qualified and are due to start an undergraduate or postgraduate degree at Queen's in September 2019. Please note: for degree courses with higher requirements than those listed, higher English language entry requirements may be required. Please contact psequb@intoglobal.com for further advice.

Students with offers for the 10, 6 or 4 week course may be eligible for a joint CAS, which allows them to apply for a visa to cover both the Pre-sessional course and subsequent degree. To be considered for this, students must hold a conditional offer only on English from the University with no academic or financial deposit conditions (i.e. conditional on IELTS or equivalent).
