Pre-Sessional English courses

Improve your English Language by studying an AUB Pre-Sessional English course in Bournemouth.

Our Pre-Sessional English courses are for students who have not yet met our minimum English Language requirements or are looking to improve their study skills in the UK before starting their main course. They also offer students the perfect opportunity to settle into life in the UK and practice their English outside of the classroom.

Currently, AUB is only able to offer Pre-Sessional courses for students applying to study at both BA or MA level.

For both study levels, we provide an 11 (6+5) week and a 5 week option on the AUB campus. The course that you’ll need to study will depend on how much you need to improve your English Language before beginning your main course of study.

The dates of the Pre-Sessional courses are:

11 (6+5) week course
Monday 15 June-Friday 28 August 2020

5  week course
Monday 27 July-Friday 28 August 2020

Make sure to book your course before the deadline – you can read more about how to book your Pre-Sessional course here.

You may also wish to visit our Pre-Sessional Accommodation page, to find out more about your options for where you can stay during your Pre-Sessional study and what help the AUB can offer to you in finding your accommodation.

If you need a visa to study in the UK, we also recommend that you read about the visa requirements for our Pre-Sessional Courses.
