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.

Entry requirements

You will need to have a conditional offer for a course at the University of Dundee, which requires you to attend the 8 week pre-sessional course. No more than 0.5 overall IELTS band below course requirement and no skill below 0.5 IELTS band of course requirement.
