These full-time, intensive English language courses are for international students with IELTS (Academic) scores of either 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 or 6.5 and who hold an offer to study on an undergraduate or postgraduate course with us.

If you successfully complete your relevant pre-sessional course, there is no need to retake an IELTS test.

In 2022 we will be offering both Online and On-campus courses.

Our intention to offer these courses On-campus in Cardiff, as described on these pages, may need to change in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and any legislation, regulation or government guidance that applies at the relevant time. Any such changes will be made in accordance with the University’s Terms and Conditions of Offer and you will be notified of any changes required as soon as possible.
