Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic this Pre-sessional English course will be studied online for the full 14 weeks. If you are eligible, you may be able to complete the final 8 weeks of this course on campus in Dundee. 

Start date: Friday 4 September 2020

Our Pre-Sessional English courses help you to meet the English language entry requirements for your chosen course. If you pass the Pre-sessional course you can progress onto your full University of Dundee degree without having to take additional IELTS examinations.

Our courses are also designed to improve your academic English proficiency in a university context. The course will give you an understanding of the language of higher education and help you adapt to university life better than a standard English course.

We will also introduce you to British university life. This means you're less likely to experience culture shock, which often happens when people move to another country, and settle into university life much easier.
