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.

Terms and Conditions


Notification of your withdrawal from any Pre-sessional course must be sent by email to the Presessional mailbox ( as soon as you know that you will not be attending the course. A £250 administration fee will be retained from your full payment.

Please note: Attendance on any of our Pre-sessional courses does not guarantee that you will automatically progress onto a main programme of studies with the University of Kent.
