    Our courses are accredited by BALEAP

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.

What Our Students Say

Mayuko Okada

"The Centre for English and World Languages supports you in various ways even after you have finished the Pre-sessional course. They teach you to improve your English language, to prepare for daily life in the UK and the tutors are a great help when it comes to assignments and essays."

Mayuko Okada, Junior Year Abroad English Plus
