Pre-sessional English Courses

Our Pre-sessional courses take place before you start your degree at Kent. They focus on developing your English language & study skills so you can meet the level of proficiency needed for your degree.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all our courses will run online for the present time. We have amended the dates of our courses to allow time for visa applications (where relevant) from your home country. We intend to run the courses on campus again when possible.

Please also see the University's Applicant Advice page for further information on the University's response to COVID-19, and our Kent English Language Test page for information on our in-house English language testing.

We are delighted to confirm that the Pre-sessional Course results from Summer 2020 can be used for September 2020 and 2021 entry onto your main programme.

Dates, Entry Requirements & Fees

We offer a series of pre-sessional courses throughout the academic year. They range from 15 to 4 weeks. All of the courses will be taught online in 2020. Which course you take depends on your current level of English and the level required for your future degree.

If you are unable to demonstrate your English language level because of COVID-19 closures, please see our Kent English Language Test page for information on our in-house testing.

We are delighted to confirm that the Pre-sessional Course results from Summer 2020 can be used for Sep 2020 and 2021 entry onto your main programme.
