Need help with your English?
Are you concerned about your English language skills? Do you already have an offer to study with us or are you thinking about submitting an application for 2013? Cardiff University’s pre-sessional courses have been designed to help students improve their English skills before academic classes start.
English Language Courses
Cardiff University offers a range of English Language courses for students who want to improve their language skills before academic classes start
Cardiff University runs 8 and 10 week Pre-sessional courses during the summer months, designed for students with an offer to start a degree programme in the autumn.
The course is a full-time, intensive English language programme specifically designed for international students with an offer to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level at Cardiff University.
Previous graduates have told us that the course has given them extra confidence and enabled them to participate more fully in their lectures and seminars.
Postgraduate Research Pre-sessional
Cardiff University now offers a Postgraduate Research Pre-sessional course, which is specifically for students who need to improve their English language skills before joining the research environment at Cardiff. This course is a highly intensive three-month course starting in September and designed specifically for students who are planning to start their research degree study in January.
English for University Study Programme
Formerly known as the “Bridge” Programme, this is a full-time English language and study skills course, which can be a 2, 6 or 9-month programme (depending on existing English language skills).
It is specifically designed for International students from outside the EU who:
- want to improve their English language skills to the level needed for English-medium university education in the UK
- want to learn the academic study skills they need to study effectively in the UK
The programme provides each student with the skills and language needed for a smooth transition into academic study. We aim to develop confident and successful students who are equipped for university study in the UK.
