Admission to the pre-sessional courses is restricted to students who have an offer to study a degree at the University of Westminster. There are two ways of joining the course:

  • If you have an offer for the degree course you have applied for but you have not met our English language requirements, we will also make you an offer on the pre-sessional English course. You must meet the minimum English requirements for the pre-sessional course
  • If you have met the English language requirements for your degree course, but would like to study on one of our pre-sessional English courses, please contact the admissions officer responsible for your chosen degree programme or email [email protected]

We will then contact you to confirm your place. Once we have done this you will have to pay your pre-sessional fees and the deposit for your undergraduate or postgraduate course. When you contact the University please provide us with your English language qualification and your student reference number.

We run 12-week and 7-week Pre-sessional English language courses for academic courses starting in September and January of each year.

Preparing for your pre-sessional course

Preparing to live and study in another country is not easy. In order to help you with the transition, we would like to encourage you to use the Prepare for Success website. The activities will allow you to get information on what to expect from your studies at a British university and will help you continue strengthening your English language and your study skills.
