English Language Pre-sessional Courses

Our Pre-sessional courses help you meet the language requirements for your degree programme at the University of Wolverhampton.

Due to the Coronavirus situation, all our Pre-sessional courses have been moved online so you can still study your Pre-sessional course with us and move on to your main degree course with the required level of English and academic skills.  You can do our online Pre-sessional course from your own home – you do not need to be on our campus in order to study but you will need access to a PC or laptop and a good quality internet connection in order to fully participate . Please also be aware that classes with your lecturer will take place at times between 9am and 3pm GMT so please take this into consideration.

If you would like to contact us, please email ia@wlv.ac.uk, and we will get back to you, or you can email admissions@wlv.ac.uk

Tulika Mondal

"I have enjoyed the teaching as the lecturers help you learn in an understanding way and the course is giving me the opportunity to help me in my academic career to further study my Masters in Public Health in the university.  I have enjoyed meeting people from different countries and I think the facilities are good."

 

Nagla Osman Mohamed

"My class time was really motivating and my teacher always gave us support to be confident in ourselves and was very friendly and patient.  The course helped me to know how to deal with academic material, my language really increased and I enjoyed working in groups I am impressed with the Campus and I made friends with students from Cameroon, Qatar, India and China. I want to progress to study a Master degree in Building Information Modelling and I found the Pre-sessional English language course a nice learning experience."

 

Nawal Al Amri

"All the staff have helped me and given me the support I needed and I have learnt how to use grammar and write in English. The teaching style is motivating and I would recommend studying at the University of Wolverhampton."
