English language courses

For details of our entry requirements, including English language proficiency, please see Entry requirements.


For September entrants, the English Language Teaching (ELT) Centre offers a highly recommended and enjoyable four-week pre-sessional English Language Course. The course includes study skills and introduces you to the University and life in the UK.  For further information, please refer to the ELT website.


ELT's In-sessional English Language Service (IELS) offers free language support for matriculated students who are users of English as a second or additional language.

There are a selection of modules available at sub-honours level, which we strongly recommend to Exchange and Study Abroad students who are users of English as a second or additional language.  These modules all have a module code starting with 'ET' and details are available in the Course Catalogue and on the ELT website.
