What will I learn?

Explore the world around you

Business is vital to everyday life, from shopping online to multinational banking. It is an exciting and constantly evolving subject with excellent job prospects. Social sciences studies individuals, societies, and the interactions between both. Humanities centres on the the successes and failures of the human race: our language, literature, the arts, history and more.

The Pre-Master's programme is an opportunity for you to gain more knowledge of your subject as well as practising your English and study skills. After this, you will be ready to make a confident start to your Master's programme at Cardiff University.

What will I study?

If you are studying either the 3 semester or 2.5 semester programmes, the first semester (10 weeks) or 0.5 semester (5 weeks) of your programme will focus on improving your English language skills. For the final two semesters, you will move to study academic skills modules, academic modules related to your chosen subject-area, and continue to receive English language training.

When you complete the first semester (10 weeks) or 0.5 semester (5 weeks), you will be assessed internally to ensure you have reached the required B2 level in order to progress to your final two semesters.

If you start the 2 semester programme, your programme will consist of academic skills modules, academic modules related to your subject-area, and English language training.

Progress to your degree

After completing your Pre-Master's and achieving the necessary grades, you can transition to your chosen postgraduate degree.
