English for Academic Purposes Pre-sessional

COVID-19 Update

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our highest priority. Currently we are planning to run our English for Academic Purposes Pre-sessional course on campus, in Manchester.  However, if UK Government/University of Manchester guidance changes, we will offer the course online so you are able to access it from home.

Our full-time English for Academic Purposes Pre-sessional course is designed to prepare you for your future degree course, whilst studying in the vibrant culture of The University of Manchester.

This course is ideal for you if you have a B1-B2 level of English (according to the CEFR) and you are aiming to continue on to an undergraduate or postgraduate programme either at the University of Manchester or another university in an English speaking country.  The course is available for between 10 and 40 weeks of study.

Our courses are accredited by The British Council and BALEAP and we are proud we are recognised as the number one University Language Centre in the UK, according to the EL Gazette University Language Centre rankings from 2019 - 2021.
