Extra English support while you study

Teaching and assessment methods in the UK are often very different to your home university. Even students who meet the English language requirement often need extra support with academic English and study skills. If English isn't your first language, we ask you to have an assessment when you arrive - we'll give you details when you enrol.

If you score less than 70%, we place you on our free in-sessional academic English and study skills course (one two-hour class per week). When you complete it, you receive a University Certificate in Continuing Education in English for Learning - or 10 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits for Erasmus students.
