Pre-Sessional English course at Brunel

Students who are unable to meet the English language requirements for their chosen LBIC programme, can apply for entry onto a pre-sessional English course at Brunel University London. Courses help students to vastly improve their English language skills. After successful completion, they will gain direct entry to an academic programme with LBIC.

Courses last for six to 48 weeks, depending on the ability of the student. An UKVI IELTS score of at least 4.0 is required for entry onto a course.

Courses are run by the Brunel Language Centre, which was established in 2005. It is accredited by the British Council and has had ‘Centre of Excellence’ status since 2012.

Classes have a maximum number of 14 students, so each individual will be able to receive the personal support they need. The centre has an average pass rate of more than 96%, meaning that students will be well-equipped for a successful experience at LBIC.
