Pre-sessional English is taught face-to-face on campus and will help you advance your English language skills to the level required by your chosen degree.
The aims of this program are to improve your English level by between 0.5 and 1.0 IELTS point (depending on course length), to increase your confidence in the use of English language in both an academic and social environment, to become a more independent and critical learner, and to become more familiar with relevant academic subject-matter.
Focusing on content-specific vocabulary, academic writing, reading, listening and speaking, it is taught by expert teachers to a high standard, and offers guaranteed progression to your chosen degree at the University of East Anglia.
100% of Pre-sessional English students at INTO UEA progressed to UEA in 2022.
This program is available to study on campus only. If you are unable to obtain your visa in time to study in the UK, we are also running online Pre-sessional English courses.
