Pre-Sessional English (PSP)
Our Pre-Sessional English Programmes (PSP) will help you develop your English language and study skills for your chosen degree programme for the September 2021 and January 2022 intakes.
You will study these programmes completely online from your home country before starting your degree programme.
To deliver these programmes fully online, we will use our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Every year our 20,000 students use this to support their studies. It is based around Brightspace and Zoom software. So you will need to make sure you have a good internet connection to complete your studies.
PSP Courses run between 6 and 12 weeks, depending on your current level of English. You would need to demonstrate this using one of the tests in the table below.
