Which course is right for me?

Pre-Sessional English courses are designed not just to fulfil the language requirements of your offer from the University of Liverpool, but to maximise your potential success by developing the communication and study skills necessary for academic study in the UK.

The level of language required by your department and your current language level will define the length of course you will need. All courses finish on the same date, but your start date may differ depending on the length of the course you need.

Because of the uncertainty around travel in 2021/22, the English Language Centre is offering both on-campus blended learning and fully online courses which follow the successful curriculum of our on-campus Pre-sessional programmes.

Whether you choose to study fully online or on campus, both methods of study give essential training in the academic skills necessary to succeed at University and both have the same forms of assessment.

Any face-to-face teaching will take place in a COVID-secure manner, including socially distanced classrooms and will only go ahead if allowed under UK government guidelines at the time at which it is scheduled. If you want to know more about blended learning, you are welcome to contact us.

The University of Liverpool English Language Centre is dedicated to providing a valuable, effective education for international students, so you can be sure that whichever method of study you choose you will be in the best possible position to succeed in your academic career. Our Pre-sessional courses offer more than just an assessment of your language level; they create a strong foundation for your future academic career by developing your academic skills, confidence and digital literacy.

Please note: For the 2021/22 academic year, it will not be possible to switch between online and blended delivery courses. As a result, we ask that you think carefully about the best course option for you prior to applying.
