Some important points

  • Arrive and enrol with us on the first day of your pre-sessional course.
  • Have full attendance in order to successfully complete the programme, so that you can progress onto your main course of study;
  • Meet the English Language requirements of your main course at the end of your pre-sessional course. The UKVI requires you to reach B2 standard (equivalent to IELTS 5.5) in all four skills before you proceed to your main course.

If you fail to meet any of the above requirements you will be in breach of the UKVI conditions for your visa.
