High quality Pressional English programmes are available for students who do not yet meet the English language entry requirements. A recent British Council accreditation review has rated the standard or English language teaching at the University of Birmingham as being outstanding, placing us as one of the best providers of English language teaching in the HE sector.
If you require additional English language tuition, you will able to apply for a specific Foundation Academy Presessesional English programme that takes place before the start of your first term. This programme will typically be from 6 to 20 weeks in duration, depending upon your current English language level; longer courses are available, if required. Upon successful completion of the programme, you can transfer to the Foundation Academy without needing to take another English language test.
The Presessional English Programme is not part of the Birmingham Foundation Academy Package. Please see the brochure for more information about programmes in 2013-2014 here
