Pre-sessional English

Our Pre-sessional courses are designed to prepare you to study art and design with us. Each course will improve your IELTS score by 0.5 or 1.0 and ensure you meet the English requirements for your desired course. These courses are available if you plan to progress onto an undergraduate or postgraduate course, or the Graduate Diploma: Art and Design course.

By undertaking a Pre-sessional course you will not only improve your IELTS score, but also improve your academic English, expand your art and design vocabulary, develop your research skills, boost your confidence as a creative arts student in the UK and help you to understand more about living and studying here.

Our experienced English for Academic Purposes (EAP) staff will deliver a timetable of 21 hours per week of class time and two afternoons per week for independent study and personal time. On this course you will have the opportunity to visit art galleries, museums and exhibitions in London and the South East, so you can start putting your new English skills into practice!
