Presessional courses are designed for students who wish to improve their knowledge of spoken and written English in preparation for academic study at the University of Birmingham. Students with conditional offers have the option of attending one of these courses instead of retaking IELTS.
Presessional courses are only open to students who hold a University offer. They are suitable for Foundation, Undergraduate, Pre-Masters and Postgraduate students.
Please note that UKVI have temporarily reversed their April decision regarding TOEFL and we are currently pleased to accept the TOEFL test as evidence of English language ability. If you wish to apply for one of our presessional programmes you must present either an IELTS, TOEFL or a PTE Academic test.
