Course description

Pre-sessional courses last for between 3 - 10 weeks and focus on improving your academic English. All our courses cover areas such as academic writing, note-taking and presentation skills. The length of course you will be required to take will be determined by the academic School to which you have applied, with advice from the ULC.

For students who do not have a conditional offer from the University of Manchester or who need a longer period of study, our English for Academic Purposes course would be more appropriate.

Our pre-sessional courses are accredited by BALEAP, in addition to Accreditation UK, ensuring that they are of the highest quality.
