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, the 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 a 13 (8+5) week option, which is run in collaboration with our partner language school, Anglo-Continental School of English; and a 5 week option on the AUB campus. The course that you will need to study will depend on how much you need to improve your English Language or study skills before beginning your main course of study.

The dates of the Pre-Sessional Course are:

13 (8+5) week course Monday 4th June – Friday 27th July 2018

5  week course Monday 30th July – Friday 31st August 2018
