Please note that due to COVID-19, there may be alterations to the course to ensure the safety of staff and students. All applicants will be informed of any significant change to their course in due time. You can find the most up-to-date information here, or you are welcome to contact us directly.
Our Pre-Sessional course has six entry points depending on your current level of English and how long you need to study for. Normally, all students finish their Pre-Sessional course on the same Friday in early September.
Our longest courses are divided into three stages, plus the 10-week summer course, as shown above. If you study with us in Stage 3 you will need to successfully complete assessments in order to progress to the 10-week summer course.
During Stage 1-3 and the first part of the 12-week course, you will study with students holding offers for all different subjects. For the final 10 weeks or if you join us for the 6-week course, you will be grouped with students studying the same subject as you, or a subject from the same family of disciplines. Our pathways are:
Humanities and Social Sciences Pathway: for students holding an offer for subjects within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science (including degrees in the University of Liverpool Management School).
Humanities Pathway: for students holding an offer for subjects within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science (excluding degrees in the University of Liverpool Management School).
Management Pathway: for students holding an offer for the University of Liverpool Management School. If you are not sure if your degree is within the University of Liverpool Management School then you can check using the links below:
Science Pathway: for students holding an offer for subjects within the Faculty of Science & Engineering or Health & Life Sciences.
