We offer varying lengths of Pre-sessional English language courses for different levels of learners.  The courses are designed for international students or for students whose first language is not English who do not have the required level of English and wish to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level at the University of Wolverhampton.  Upon successful completion, and subject ot professional body requirements students will be able to progress to most undergraduate or postgraduate courses at the University of Wolverhampton, excluding professional related courses needing a PSRB requirement such Nursing, Teaching, Social Work, Pharmacy etc.  Please check individual course entry requirements.  (Please note that entry levels are subject to minimum band scores).
