English for Academic Purposes Pre-sessional

COVID-19 Update

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our highest priority. To help keep everyone safe, we are offering our English for Academic Purposes Pre-sessional course with two flexible learning options. Students can either opt to study fully online, or, for students who are able to join us here in Manchester, a blended learning option is available which includes both online and face to face teaching. 

For our April starters, the course will be taught fully online.

If you want to apply for our summer Pre-sessional courses (July - Sept 2021), please go to our Pre-sessional English pages for the latest information.

 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.
