Pre-sessional course for Masters and PhD students
Our optional pre-sessional course provides the basic background needed for our Masters and
PhD courses. It is a refresher course if you're returning to study after a period at work, or
entering from a different field of study. The course is also a good way to meet some of your
class-mates before your full programme of degree study starts.
This two week course runs in September, prior to the start of term.
- Pre-sessional course fee: £375 (excluding accommodation)
