English Language Centre

The English Language Centre at the University of Liverpool provides specialist support for those whose first language is not English, need to attain a certain level for ongoing study, or who wish to continue to develop and refine their academic English.

Situated centrally on Abercrombie Square, with access to all university facilities, the University of Liverpool English Language Centre is regularly inspected by an external body to ensure that it maintains the highest possible standards in all areas of its operation.

Pre-sessional English

Our Pre-Sessional English courses are designed for international students who wish to enter an undergraduate or postgraduate degree programme at a British university, or who are holding an offer of study at the University of Liverpool and who need support in meeting the English language requirements of their main programme.

Our Pre-Sessional course has six entry points depending on your current level of English and how long you need to study for.

Successful completion of the course at the required level will allow you to progress to academic study at the University of Liverpool.

In-sessional English

The English Language Centre provides an extensive programme of free of charge English language support for students who are already studying at the University but who would like to improve their use of academic English. Regular attendance can make a significant contribution to performance on your main study programme and help you achieve your full academic potential.
