English language support

We offer a wide range of English language support courses, specifically designed for international students. You can take a language course both before your degree (pre-sessional) or during your studies (in-sessional).

Studying English before your main course

Pre-sessional English Programme

These courses are designed for international students who need to learn the correct level of English language before studying a Higher Education course at UWE Bristol. We offer courses of different lengths depending on the level of support you need.

As well improving your English language skills, you will also learn all about studying and living in the UK.
