ENGLISH LANGUAGE

General English
General English classes are perfect for individuals who need to enhance their English language capacity in preparation for work or study. Classes take in all components of ordinary English and are intended to give you the familiarity and certainty required when working or learning in an English speaking country.

IELTS Preparation
IELTS Preparation courses are designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills required for an IELTS examination. They focus on elements of the exam that you may struggle with in order to give you the best chance of achieving your desired result. 

Presessional
These types of courses are suitable if you are considering joining university-level courses in the UK and are only few points away from the English language entry requirements for your desired course. If you do not wish to retake the English proficiency test such as IELTS or TOEFL, Pre sessional programmes are the option for you. The pre sessional course often takes place at the university or college campus before the main course starts. You need to be aware of the course starting dates; the courses have a specific starting date which varies from one university/college to another. In order for you to be considered for the pre sessional course, you need to have a minimum of band 4.5 overall in IELTS or equivalent.

PATHWAYS

Foundation
International Foundation Courses or the ‘International Foundation Year’ is designed to prepare international students for the demands of university by offering a comprehensive selection of language and subject-focused modules. A foundation course can be taken by those who haven’t achieved the required qualifications for direct entry onto a Bachelors course or by students who need to improve their English language skills. Students can expect a variety of lessons focusing on academic and research skills, subject-focused modules and English language study.

Pre-Masters
Pre-Masters courses are a popular choice for international students looking to enhance their English language skills in the UK before beginning a postgraduate degree. These courses can be found at many institutions across the UK, some of which will guarantee entry onto a Master’s course once your Pre-Masters is complete.

MPhil

If you wish to study a PhD, you may first need to begin an MPhil and then transfer to a PhD programme after 12-18 months. An MPhil is also a qualification in its own right and is generally thesis-only, lasting one year full-time and two years part-time. The thesis must present the results of a study and research and be a maximum of 60,000 words. Students choose to study an MPhil is the proposed research has insufficient scope for a full PhD.

UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor Degree 
In the UK a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science or Engineering (BSc, BEng) usually takes three years to complete. A ‘sandwich’ degree (this is a degree combining 1 year of industrial experience) or a degree with an integrated Masters (usually Science and Engineering) will take 4 years to complete. Some courses may also include a 1 year foundation course for students who don’t have the necessary qualifications. It is popular to combine academic teaching with work experience in the UK. This has the major benefit of increasing a student’s chances of securing employment after graduation. The most prestigious universities are usually more focused on academic studies, but many students are still encouraged to take on summer internships to boost their skills and credentials.

POSTGRADUATE TAUGHT

 

Masters Degree
Masters degrees usually last for just 1 year and are either taught or research focused. Diplomas are also available at postgraduate level and although these can vary in length, they are often shorter than Master’s Degrees and may charge lower fees. Postgraduate study is focused on individual study to an even greater extent than undergraduate courses. However, there is still plenty of support available to postgraduate students via university services or an academic supervisor.

POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH

 

PhD​

A PhD is the highest degree awarded at universities in the UK. Study is based around a substantial research project on an area of academic interest, typically up to 100,000 words in length, written as a thesis which then must be defended in an oral examination at the end of the programme. Students are assigned a supervisor and the duration of a PhD is typically three years full-time and six years part-time.

Very few research degrees feature taught modules, and as such a student is expected to take more responsibility for their work and schedule.
