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 the University of Exeter in September. Please note: there may be a variation in English language requirements depending on your intended degree programme.

Ready to get your future on track? Study overseas with INTO in March or April and you can progress to university as early as September 2022.

Our six-month university pathway programs - designed for students with a higher level of English - will help you start your degree sooner.

You'll also save time and money with a shorter program - and applying for a Standard Visitor visa is easier.
