Our University pre-sessional programme will help you to improve your English and also give you practical help with the kinds of work you need to do at university to ensure you succeed. The programme is focused on how to research, evaluate and communicate your opinions in writing or verbally, which are vital skills at university.
Our pre-sessional programme can help you begin your university course without preparing for the IELTS exam. Our partner universities accept the NCG pre-sessional certificate for the purposes of admission.
In addition to English language, key skills that will be taught include:
*You need to have an assessment of your English level – this can be a test given by NCG or your IELTS certificate if you have one.
〒This course is also suitable for students with a high level of English but no training in academic writing
* will include a General English initial component
The length of your course will depend on your level of English and what kind of university programme you are going on to study afterwards.
Workload: 21 hours of class with a teacher each week + 10-15 hours independent study
Passing the course: All students will have to pass their final assessments in order to pass the course and proceed to university. Students who do not pass first time will have the option to resit/redo their assessment.
