Our pre-sessional courses offer the best possible preparation for your studies at the University of Bristol.
If you hold an undergraduate or postgraduate offer from us, these pre-sessional courses will provide the academic and language skills you need to succeed. You will take charge of your own development, gaining confidence and independence.
We offer 10-week and 6-week courses, designed to suit students with a range of language abilities.
Our pre-sessional courses will help you develop skills and strategies to:
- meet the expectations of your chosen academic programme
- communicate in a range of academic contexts
- succeed in a UK higher education context
- identify goals and monitor your learning.
Both online and on-campus courses offer an equally high-quality experience. Whichever option you choose, you will benefit from live taught sessions, interaction with peers, personalised feedback and opportunities to participate in academic life.
