What are Pre-Masters?

Pre-Masters education is for international students who want to start their Masters education but need to improve their English or academic proficiency. Pre-Masters programs in the UK are designed to prepare foreign students for postgraduate study and train students to a high standard.

The duration of the trainings varies between 10 weeks and 12 months and provides the necessary infrastructure for a successful graduate education. Pre-masters help foreign students become familiar with English teaching methods, while developing the English language and learning skills necessary for successful postgraduate studies.

Do I Need Pre-Master Training?

If the following items apply to you, you need to take Pre-Masters training:

If your undergraduate education does not meet the requirements for the graduate education you want to receive
If you need to improve your academic or general English
If you want to improve your reading, research or presentation techniques

Pre-Masters Application Requirements

You must have at least a passing degree from any undergraduate major from a recognized institution.

A minimum IELTS score of 5.5 is required for a typical two-semester Pre-Masters course.

If you have not yet achieved the required score for the department you want, you can contact us and take extra IELTS lessons online from our experienced teachers.
