Our pre-sessional English language pathways are ideal if you need to improve your English before starting one of our courses.
We offer various pre-sessional programmes based on your needs and English proficiency. If you have a conditional offer to study with us, we have three pathways that will enable you to meet our English language entry requirements without the need to retake your English test – PALSS, PEL and subject-specific programmes. You can use our pre-sessional finder below to see the options available for you.
If you have an unconditional offer, but would like to take an extra course before starting your studies, you may be interested in our Essex Academic Skills Programme. This is a four week course that introduces you to study skills commonly used at UK universities and will help you become familiar with Essex and our academic culture.
If you plan to join the second year of an undergraduate course and need a pre-sessional pathway, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on entry requirements.
If you have any questions about your application, please contact our English language programmes administrative team by emailing email@example.com.
