English language support

Academic English

We offer support in academic English for undergraduate and postgraduate students. If you meet the basic English entry requirements we can help you improve your English through our course in English for Academic Purposes. At undergraduate level, academic English modules are credited.

Pre-sessional English

Our pre-sessional English courses will help you develop the language and study skills necessary for academic life on a full-time course. If you have been offered a place on an undergraduate or postgraduate course at the University of Westminster but haven’t yet reached the language level for your chosen course, a pre-sessional course may be for you, provided you meet the entry level requirements.

Our aim is to provide you with a solid foundation and give you the skills, knowledge and experience to make the most of your time at university. You will also experience student life through our social and welcome programmes. Read more about pre-sessional English.
